AGE WELL and join the Keeping Connected programs.
Did you know that according to leading psychologists, genetics play a very small part in human longevity?
The most important factor in a long and fulfilling life is daily positive faceto- face interaction, which also results in a much lower rate of Dementia than among those who spend a lot of time alone. Keeping Connected offers many interesting and relevant programs each week for our seniors to choose from. Our trained and caring staff team will help overcome the barriers to participation. We pick up people in the neighbourhood and bring them to programs, and provide one-on-one volunteer support when needed. We also provide reminder calls about programs.
If you or someone you know struggles with a loss, or is isolated in their home, these programs could be a great fit, and a start to living a fuller, and more fulfilling life.
Join us, and meet new friends, learn new skills, stay strong in your body and mind and have fun!
