The purpose of a senior drop-in program is to reduce the risk of the social isolation of immigrant seniors who have limited access to culturally sensitive activities.

Hosting a seniors program provides a platform where seniors can share their life skills, experience and interests amongst their peers in a socially supportive environment preventing loneliness and isolation.

This weekly drop-in program gives seniors an opportunity to interact with one another, network, make new friends, plan and get involved in activities. This group also provides a platform for seniors to utilize their experience and time constructively to share thoughts and viewpoints.

Activities in the Senior Connection Program include:

  • Arts and Crafts,
  • Poetry
  • Field trips
  • Discussions on topics of interest
  • Light exercise.

This social interaction empowers seniors by maintaining better mental and physical health and improving self-esteem.
