Providing better care for seniors supports the government’s Action Plan for Health Care and its commitment to provide the right care, at the right time, in the right place. It is also part of the government's economic plan that is creating jobs for today and tomorrow by focusing on Ontario's greatest strengths – its people and strategic partnerships.
“This is an important investment. It means that more seniors in Scarborough-Guildwood will now have access to free classes which will help them to live active lives and stay in their own homes. I want to encourage all seniors who might benefit from this free programming to take full advantage of it.”
— Mitzie Hunter MPP, for Scarborough-Guildwood
