Seniors are considered with reverence. We offer our seniors in our community a place where they are welcome, treated with respect, reduce their isolation, offer them a place where they can learn many activities and keep their minds and bodies active, many seniors will have a place where they can offer their talents to teach or mentor people in this modern world.
Now, do you realise the health and well being seniors can develop with activities we offer? Just take a close look at these seniors performing at our Age of Literati performance held at the Flato Markham Theater.
