Services For Seniors
Last year over 250 seniors in the GTA participated in our seniors services, where they learnt a new skill, accessed community resources and health and wellness programs. Here’s what Inez, one of our participants had to say about her experience in this program:
“I am a 67 year old senior. I was referred to Polycultural because I was going through a very difficult time in my life; separation from my husband and many different challenges which ended with me being diagnosed with depression. Coming to Polycultural was very helpful, because I found support, understanding and I was able to communicate in my native language.
Polycultural’s staff helped me to regain my strength and stabilize my life. The counsellors helped me with housing, Ontario Disability Support Program and later with pension benefits. In addition to receiving individual counselling I joined the Seniors Group. Being a member of the group allowed me to be connected to the community, and not to be isolated. Because of the support I have received, I am fully enjoying my life now. Thanks to Polycultural, I am more confident.”
