Media Advisory / Photo Opportunity - Toronto home for the aged opens Internet Café, helps residents embrace electronic age
  
Date: Monday, May 27
Time: 2 p.m.
Location: Bendale Acres 2920 Lawrence Ave. E. Main Floor

Bendale Acres, a Toronto home for the aged, will officially open its Internet
Café and help keep seniors connected to the electronic age. A ceremony will
include demonstrations of the computer and a variety of accessibility aids by
residents who have embraced this technology.

Staff who have created this café, along with residents who are already using
the computer, will be available for interviews and photographs.

Toronto Homes for the Aged believes that learning is a lifelong activity. The
Internet Café at Bendale Acres is one of many initiatives the homes are
undertaking to create an environment that promotes continuous learning,
self-development and independence. Plans are under way to create computer
lounges in each of Toronto's 10 homes for the aged, which is actively pursuing
a number of partnerships with community and educational organizations to make
these lounges a reality.
