Toronto Homes for the Aged invites neighbours to say hello
On Sunday, October 1, in celebration of the International Day of Older Persons, each of Toronto’s 10 homes for the aged will take part in “Open Doors,” a province-wide celebration to educate seniors and families about options for long-term care and retirement living. Hundreds of locations across Ontario are opening their doors to the community.

Visitors will see first-hand what living in a Toronto home for the aged is really like. They will be able to talk to residents and meet the committed staff members who make it their mission to provide the very best of care and services. Activities will include displays, refreshments, special presentations and tours of the homes.
