Alzheimer SocietyThe province is helping seniors stay healthy, active and connected in their own communities, with $11.5 million going to support 265 centres across Ontario.

Elderly Persons Centres provide social and recreational programs that promote wellness for seniors and offer them places to gather for activities such as arts and crafts, fitness classes and computer classes.

This funding will help the centres maintain operations and make small renovations, such as improving accessibility or making technological upgrades to better serve clients.

“Seniors’ centres provide a sense of belonging, where seniors are able to stay active, socialize, and build support networks,” states Sue Hesjedahl, executive director, Older Adult Centres Association of Ontario in a news release. “Working with the provincial government, seniors’ centres will continue to strengthen our communities.”
