CAH Launches New Services for Francophone Seniors in North-West Toronto

TORONTO, Nov. 11, 2011 /CNW/ - On Monday, November 14, 2011, CAH (Les Centres d'Accueil Héritage) will officially launch its new French-language Adult Day Program at 2562 Eglinton Avenue West. From its main location at Place Saint-Laurent in the St-Lawrence Market area, CAH has been delivering housing and support services for French-speaking seniors in the GTA for more than 30 years. As the only provider of community support services in French in the GTA, CAH has long sought to extend its services to other parts of the city. Today, CAH is delighted to announce that, thanks to a partnership with St. Clair West Services for Seniors, it is opening a new branch in north-west Toronto.

Our new branch will offer an Adult Day Program to Francophones experiencing a loss of physical and/or cognitive autonomy. Our accredited recreationists deliver a program of activities based on the latest research in the area of health promotion, all within a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The Adult Day Program includes a hot lunch and round-trip transportation.

Also offered in the new space is a program designed to encourage those who want to maintain a healthy lifestyle and their quality of life as they age.  The program includes exercise classes as well as computer and language courses in addition to a full range of recreational and social activities.

From our new location, CAH will also provide case management, service coordination and home help services to Francophones living in the neighbourhood. CAH hopes to create a service hub for the French community in the area.

According to Executive Director Gérard Parent, "CAH's presence in this part of the city marks the first step towards an expansion of our community support services in the GTA with the goal of providing equitable access to all Francophones regardless of where they live in the city".
