Our seniors deserve to thrive and engage with others in a dignified and healthy lifestyle, with access to services in Portuguese.
Our population is aging and in the GTA there is a critical need to support Portuguese-Canadian seniors. To ensure that our parents and grandparents can live with dignity in a home environment that is sensitively attuned to their cultural heritage, Magellan Community Charities is proud to be developing a seniors centre. Magellan will be built at 640 Lansdowne Avenue in the heart of the Portuguese community to provide exceptional care and support. Apart from English, Portuguese is the mother tongue spoken by the greatest number of citizens in this ward. Many of these citizens are seniors, and 16 out of every 100 residents are seniors who require long-term care services.
