Coming of Age for Seniors' Month

Posted on Jun 3, 2010

June is Seniors' Month, a time of recognition for our seniors across Ontario that has been celebrated for over 25 years and St. Paul's L'Amoreaux Centre is planning several activities and events to show our gratitude toward the older generation who have strived for the prosperity we enjoy today.

St. Paul’s has been a leader in the field of housing and senior care and offers an array of programs and services designed to promote independent living. So if you are looking for information about aging, health care, and other matters related to seniors during this month, then look no further than St. Paul’s L’Amoreaux Centre in Scarborough, Ontario.

The highly anticipated theme this year for Seniors’ Month is “Coming of Age,” which includes award ceremonies, recognition events, socials and seniors’ information fairs centered around Ontario’s progress in addressing the challenges and opportunities of a booming seniors’ population.
