Good Neighbours Active Living Centre is proud to support older adults in the community to adapt to their changing needs. We understand that aging people require services, and have more health concerns than they did before, and require opportunities for socialization as they spend less time in the community . In order to encourage healthy longevity and a more fluid understanding of the supports that exist for older adults, Good Neighbours offers the following services:
Providing information and resources to older adults in the Elmwood/ East Kildonan area. Offering activities and outings throughout the year.
Supports to Seniors is a free and confidential outreach program, funded by WRHA, that serves individuals residing in 210/220 Oakland Avenue and 1080/1100 Henderson Highway.
