Programs

R.E.A.C.H. for Aging Well project includes a variety of programs and services, reaching out and encouraging Chinese seniors 55 and over in the GTA to become a part of the community, preventing isolation and loneliness.

First phase of programs and activities start in April 2020, with the second phase rolling out in 2022 and lasting till Summer 2024.

Activities will focus on 5 dimensions of wellness: physical, emotional, social, intellectual, and vocational.
