Supporting Seniors in the Community
Currently On Hold While We Navigate CovidMemories. We all have them. Even though some details in recalling them may differ within families, that’s ok. The reality is, families are built on years of history, passages of time, connections and experiences that are as individual and unique as they are shared. Our “Memories” project is an opportunity for seniors to relive and share moments of their past, capturing their personal legacies. We will chronicle childhood memories, family traditions, favourite recipes, turning points in their life and lessons learned. Imagine the conversation, laughter, wisdom and tears that will be forever etched on each page.The best part is, we are matching seniors with young people and now, due to its popularity, individuals of all ages to document every detail of their incredible journey. Each one will be made into their own unique Memories book. Be a part of this special initiative. Together we can touch the lives of so many seniors and in return, our lives will be touched by them.
To celebrate the dreams, the passions and the cherished memories of our seniors is to respect the stories of their lives.The simplest of wishes granted has a positive and lasting effect. Imagine reuniting with a long- lost friend, enjoying a game and the attention of a favourite sports hero or revisiting a childhood neighbourhood. In fulfilling their wishes, we are enriched by their journey.If you know someone who has a special wish please completely our Wish Request form and we’ll review the request.
May you never be too grown up to search the skies on Christmas Eve.Christmas is a particularly challenging time if you don’t have any loved ones to celebrate with. Do you know we have Seniors who spend Christmas all alone? Do you know there are Seniors in retirement and long term care homes who have never had a visitor, never had a Christmas present or a birthday present? Our Christmas Stocking program is currently underway.
