More than 15 Hispanic members of FST’s Seniors and Caregivers Support Service (SCSS) program toured the national historic site of Fort York earlier this month to learn about Canada’s largest collection of original War of 1812 buildings and 1813 battle site.
The participants also learned about the history of Toronto through audio-visual presentations and were able to interact by asking questions.
FST’s SCSS unit works with older people and caregivers providing counselling, group work, advocacy, training and educational sessions on a variety of topics such as aging and memory loss, anger and guilt, how to access community resources, abuse of older adults, etc. The program offers sessions in English and Spanish.
