Giuseppina is an 80-year-old who has been a resident of Caboto Terrace since 2013. She decided to make the move to be closer to her husband, a resident of Villa Colombo at the time. Giuseppina visited her husband every day. Four months later, her husband sadly passed away. Giuseppina began to feel lonely and therefore, decided to join the Elderly Persons’ Centre, a Day Program offered at Villa Colombo.
The Elderly Persons’ Centre is designed to reach out to seniors over 55 years of age, living in the community. Seniors are invited to participate in programs and services, which include recreational and educational activities, exercise classes, outings and spiritual enrichment. Since joining this program she has made new friends and has also noticed the need for care in other Day Programs. Thus, she decided to volunteer three times a week, in the Frail Elderly Centre. Giuseppina now thoroughly enjoys her time as a vibrant senior and active member of the EPC. She has established lasting friendships with the clients, volunteers and staff.
