Toronto’s ElderConnection is a non-profit organization aimed at helping seniors stay social well into their golden years. The organization offers everything from free computer classes to group games and activities to help keep Toronto’s senior population involved in the community. Seniors are given the opportunity to meet others and learn new things in a social and non-threatening setting, all which further contribute to a higher quality of life.

Here are some of the services that ElderConnection offers:
- Computer Training. ElderConnection has teachers that can show seniors the very basics of computers all the way up to utilizing online messengers and Facebook. Some locations offer free classes while others charge a small fee, but staying up with the times is well worth it.
- Intergenerational Activities. This organization has over 85 high school volunteers that are interested in learning from the experience that our older generation has to offer. ElderConnection matches up these students with local seniors where quality conversation often leads to sincere bonds.
- Hot Topics and Issues. ElderConnection also speaks about issues that local seniors care about. Guest speakers and teachers inform seniors about legal issues, disability tax credits and the top Toronto in-home health care providers.
ElderConnection is a great resource for the Toronto senior who desires to stay social, active and involved. Another great resource is having the invaluable assistance of Home Care Assistance, a premier Toronto home care provider. Whether you need us on an hourly basis or for 24/7 live-in care, we provide companionship and promote and encourage social activity among our senior clients.
