Old Ottawa South Community Association

Senior Watch Old Ottawa South

Senior Watch Old Ottawa South (SWOOS) is a grassroots community group, and a committee of the OSCA Board, that addresses issues concerning senior residents living in Old Ottawa South.

We work with many elements in our community, including the Council on Aging, a bilingual organization that promotes senior issues and concerns.

SWOOS can be contacted via: swoos2018@gmail.com. Committee Members and anyone else interested can review our Meeting Minutes.

Old Ottawa South is a great community for young and old, but now needs to become truly age-friendly in terms of:

  • Walkability


    Our winter is long and snowy. Are you concerned about winter walking? Snow and ice can lead to difficulties getting where you want to go, especially for seniors.
  • Social Connections

    Social Connections

  • Housing


    Where and how to find a home. Exploring issues and options for seniors.
  • Health


    Preventing falls and adopting a healthy lifestyle.
