Seniors’ Month: Staying Safe, Active and Connected

As we push through the second year of living in a global pandemic, many of us have adapted our routines and schedules to keep mentally and physically active, connected to loved ones, and above all, safe. This Seniors’ Month, we celebrate and recognize those three themes – Staying Safe, Active and Connected – and focus on how Dixon Hall, as an agency, can continue to help our seniors’ community feel supported.

McMaster Institute for Research on Aging | Dixon Hall Centre

Suzanne Labarge, a McMaster University chancellor emerita and alumna, is investing $5 million in research to help improve the lives of marginalized and at-risk seniors, a group that is not often seen and heard. Labarge’s gift will support the creation of the MIRA | Dixon Hall Centre, a unique partnership between the university’s McMaster Institute for Research on Aging (MIRA) and Dixon Hall, an established multi-service agency located in the heart of downtown Toronto.
