Stay Active, Connected, and Safe
This is the theme in June for Seniors Month in Ontario. It’s a time when we recognize our amazing older Ontarians and the contributions they have made.
How do seniors contribute to our communities?
They shop, use services, and pay taxes. Seniors have more time now that they are retired and to fill those hours become amazing volunteers that many organizations would be amiss without. Seniors make more charitable donations per capita than any other age group.
What would happen if there were no grandparents available to look after grandchildren. How many parents would have to scramble to find other care options or would have to miss work because they could not find alternatives?
Seniors provide care for spouses or friends. For seniors who are couples when one becomes more dependant, the other part of the couple takes on more and more responsibilities in and outside the home. They become the primary caregiver getting groceries, running errands, cooking, and getting them to medical appointments.
Celebrating Seniors in Ontario.
We give thanks to all the seniors in our community for all they do for others and for providing a well-rounded community for everyone to live in. You deserve to be celebrated!
