Our programs can only run as long as we have a minimum number of participants registered in them. Therefore, it is very important to register for programs at least a week before the programs start. Don't be disappointed, sign up early! In the event of severe weather, please contact the Centre at 905-615-3207. Please listen to the recorded message to ensure that your program will take place.

Congratulations and thank you to all who participated in or donated to our annual Walk-a-thon. We achieved the highest pledge collection ever at $20,500+!!
We are excited to move into 2010 as some new and very exciting things are happening for Older Adult Centre members. You will remember from previous Board updates, that we have been working diligently on creating a new charity which will offer health and wellness services to our members and seniors in Mississauga. We are still waiting on approval from the Ontario Government for our charitable status. We should know by early 2010. We have already implemented some of the free services which will move over to the new charity i.e. Telephone Reassurance, counselling, health workshops and events. The charity’s name is Square One Seniors Wellness Services and we hope to officially launch it to the community soon.
It should be noted that we are able to offer these new programs and services because of government funding and partnerships with other community organizations. The Telephone Reassurance Program is funded by the Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network (MH- LHIN) in partnership with Peel Senior Link. The Counselling, Empowerment Group and a new Health Lecture Series are made possible through our partnership with Family Services of Peel. We are offering a new Living with Diabetes Support group by partnering with BALANCE for Blind Adults.
You will notice in the brochure that we are offering a couple of our programs at Peace Lutheran Church this winter season. We have run out of space at the Older Adult Centre and need to spread our wings into the community. The church has graciously opened their doors to us. We are also working on partnering with another community organization to offer more off-site active programs in the Spring of 2010.
