For over 46 years the North York Seniors Centre has served in the heart of our community connecting older adults to their community and assisting them in living safely and independently in their own homes. Though their Active Living Centre and adult day programs remain closed to in-person programming, the staff and volunteers at NYSC continue as an essential service providing rides and home support for clients throughout the pandemic.
In addition to providing rides to doctors’ appointments, testing centres and vaccination clinics, NYSC delivers groceries and ready-made meals to client homes. They have also transitioned thousands of social programs to online platforms such as zoom or by telephone via conference platforms over the past year. In the last few weeks, NYSC has also hosted three mobile vaccination clinics for seniors in the area.
Willowdale is fortunate to have such a dedicated team of staff and volunteers supporting seniors in our community. To learn more about their programs, to volunteer or offer support, visit www.nyseniors.org.
