It’s estimated that 1 in 4 Canadian seniors are living with mental health. Carefor’s unique local mental health support group, the Let’s Get Together (LGT) Club, gives participants the opportunity to socialize, develop friendships, and engage in leisure, education and wellness activities in a safe, structured and supportive setting.
That said, the program is more than just a day to connect with others, it’s a lifeline for the near 50 seniors that use the community support service every week.
For Helen Arendt, this program at Carefor’s Carling office means the world. She attends the program once a week, and has been a member for over a year: “As soon as I walked in the door, I thought this is where I belong.”
