Older Adults & Seniors

Staying active together

Our award-winning seniors program is a thriving, vibrant part of our Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House family. The goal of the program is to promote health and wellness, build supportive social relationships and create cross-cultural understanding and harmony by providing a variety of organized activities for seniors from our diverse neighbourhood.

Leadership, education, activity and participation, supported by volunteers, outreach and social workshops takes physical activities, walking clubs and seniors peer support programs to the next level. Offered in multiple locations to increase independence, promote social networks, and active aging. This program is funded by United Way and delivered by MPNH.
