June is Seniors’ Month in Ontario and Family Service Toronto celebrates the work of our Seniors and Caregivers Service unit and the contributions that all seniors make every day in communities across the province.
Each week this month, we’ll recognize the work of one or more of seniors who actively participate in our programs.
This week we celebrate Oscar Anaya, who participates in our Spanish-speaking seniors group which meets regularly on Wednesdays at our Sterling site.
He joined the group to meet other seniors and is now a peer leader working on issues related to elder abuse. And he puts his former martial arts training to good use at some group sessions when he leads Tai Chi classes in the absence of the regular instructor!
Thank you Oscar!
