Group Name: Northwood Neighbourhood Services – Senior’s Recreational Program
Description: Northwood Neighbourhood Services is a versatile organization that has been serving multicultural communities in North Toronto since 1982. We provide programs and services within the community that will empower individuals, families and groups to achieve, maintain and enhance a state of physical, mental and social well-being.
The Seniors Recreational Programs operate within the framework of engagement and empowerment so that seniors can function as active members of their communities.
The programs provide seniors with an opportunity to socialize with one another in a safe and secure environment while receiving a hot, freshly made meal. Some of the recreational activities seniors participate in include playing games, dancing, attending health and wellness workshops, celebrating holidays and birthdays as well as ethno-cultural events. Additionally, seniors receive information about their rights and the resources available for their needs. Our seniors wish to be contributing citizens. To this effect, they are mentored to take on volunteer and leadership roles within their communities.
Mindful of the ethno-cultural diversity of the population in the community, the programs serve Albanian, African and Caribbean, Vietnamese and Chinese, Latin American as well as other ethno-cultural groups.
