Coming to Canada

by on February 26, 2012

Following my visit to the New Hope Senior Citizen’s Centre, I encountered an elderly person who shared a great story. After her other half passed away, she became very lonely living by herself in a foreign country with no family surrounding her. Her family, who lives in NDG close to New Hope Senior citizen, informed her that the Centre offers an incredible number of activities, ranging from painting, physical activities etc… After hearing so much about New Hope she decided to move to Canada to benefit from the centre and be closer to her family. Despite the fact that her family was busy and was not always available to drive her to the home, she was able to attend the activities thanks to New Hope’s shuttle service.

She mentioned to me: “Even when it was impossible for me to go out to buy food, New Hope made sure to deliver my meals via their meals on wheels service”.

It is truly great to know that communities such as New Hope offer such unbelievable services and care to the elderly.
