THE NEED HAS NEVER BEEN GREATER
Life expectancy is rising in Canada and the number of seniors has increased by over 22%.
Today, we are faced with enormous challenges:
- 21% of Jewish seniors in Montreal live below the poverty line.
- 1 in 4 seniors lives with a mental illness.
- The number of seniors in crisis is increasing at an alarming rate.
We must be able to meet these needs.
The Cummings Centre is responding to these challenges by touching the lives of over 10,000 older adults annually, with services and programs for both the frail and healthy senior.
Without sustainable funding, these crucial programs and services would be in jeopardy.
Together, we can continue to enrich the lives of our seniors and protect our most vulnerable. They need our support, and we need yours.
