In the late 1970s, a group of Toronto residents took steps to obtain health and social services in French for members of the Francophone community living in Toronto who are elderly or have disabilities. Since then, we have continued to evolve according to the needs of the community.
Our clients include:
• Elderly and adults with disabilities who need help and encouragement to make the most of their physical, cognitive and social abilities and to enable them to enjoy the best possible quality of life;
• Adults 55 years of age and over who want to meet other French-speakers to chat, learn and relax in a warm and friendly atmosphere;
• Individuals living with HIV/AIDS who need care and services to continue playing an active part in community life and to feel supported at difficult times; and
• Relatives, friends and loved ones looking for information, support and respite in order to continue looking after a vulnerable person or someone coping with a loss of independence.
