The importance of information and community events: Kevin Lopes’ take away from a North York Seniors’ Centre Event
From Kevin Lopes our communications and media co-op student:
As a new member to the Mosaic community, I was excited to get first-hand experience in sharing with people what Mosaic is all about. Having the luxury of working with the lovely Mala Darshanand, both of us went to work by sharing information on our services, detailing upcoming events and showing attendees what makes Mosaic unique in the home care industry.
When things settled down, I was able to take a walk around and see what other companies and organizations were also in attendance at the community centre.
CARP the “national, non-partisan, non-profit organization committed to a ‘New Vision of Aging for Canada’” was there, as was the Toronto Council on Aging: Toronto Council on Aging is a non-profit organization that addresses issues and concerns of older Torontonians. Encouraging involvement and participation in the community, the Toronto Council on Aging also looks to advocate for older adults. By identifying issues, needs and priorities of the older adults of the community of Toronto, the Toronto Council on Aging is an important, local organization. Giving voice and encouraging participation the Toronto Council on Aging is a great local organization that you should check out.
There was also Norrdixx, a company that sell their own take on Nordic poles used for walking. These poles are meant to aid exercise, by helping support the body and at the same time using more muscles than regular walking.
I would like to encourage people to go to events like the one we at Mosaic attended at the North York Seniors Centre. Information is power, and at events like these you can find very interesting companies and organizations that could help you, with information or products and services.
North York Seniors Centre also provides the community with various other events and services, like the A Day Away Club or the Active Learning Centre. These programs provide members with a place to socialize, be active, and learn surrounded by friends and professionals.
If you would like to find out more about the programs and events hosted by the North York Seniors Centre, you can contact them by phone (416.733.4111) or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
