Program Planning


Programs are planned per the input and suggestions of the satellite members.  If you have a program idea, please drop by the Greeter's Desk at the satellite to chat with City of London staff.  If you have a talent or hobby (such as knitting, quilting, gardening, scrapbooking, dance, etc.) that you would like to volunteer to teach, please also let us know!  We would like to be able to switch up programs regularly to suit everyone's interests and needs.  We aim to provide programs in all the 7 Dimensions of Wellness (physical, spiritual, emotional, occupational, social, environmental, and intellectual).

Planeación de Programas

Los programas se organizan como resultado de las sugerencias y comentarios de los miembros de los lugares satélites. Deja tus ideas y/o sugerencias en la recepción para hablar con un empleado de la Ciudad de London. También haznos saber si tienes un pasatiempo o talento (como coser, quilting, jardinería, bailar, etc.) que te gustaría enseñar gratis. Nos gusta actualizar frecuentemente los programas para satisfacer las necesidades e intereses de todos. Nuestro objetivo es proveer programas en todas las 7 Dimensiones del Bienestar Humano (físico, emocional, intelectual, social, financiero, medio ambiente y espiritual)

We’re Ensuring a Supportive Environment for Everyone: The Seniors’ Satellite staff are newly certified in ‘dementia friendliness’ through the Alzheimer Society London Middlesex.  This certification course provides staff with additional knowledge and compassion to support those with Alzheimer’s and/or dementia.  Each of our Greeters/front desk staff at each satellite location, and those instructors with a star (*) next to their program name, have successfully completed the training. Our programs remain welcoming, friendly, and accessible for all.  Any caregiver/support person may attend the satellites free of charge (with the expectation that the caregiver will provide support to the member at all times).

Also, the majority of the Seniors' Satellite staff are newly certified in 'Sensitivity Awareness Training for persons with physical disabilities' through the March of Dimes.  This includes physical disabilities, hearing or sight impairments and more. Instructors with a plus sign (+) next to their class name have been certified to date.

Nos Aseguramos de Proveer Un Entorno De Apoyo Para Todos: La Sociedad de Alzheimer de London y Middlesex ha certificado al personal en los sitios que ofrecen programas para personas de la tercera edad con un mayor conocimiento y comprensión para apoyar a las personas con Alzheimer y/o demencia. Cada uno de nuestros empleados en estos programas satélites y los instructores con un asterisco (*) al lado del nombre del curso que enseñan, han completado exitosamente la capacitación. Nuestros programas continúan siendo accesibles y de gran beneficio para la comunidad. El acompañante o persona de apoyo puede asistir a los programas satélites sin ningún costo (se espera que la persona de apoyo/cuidado personal esté pendiente de la persona con Alzheimer y/o demencia en todo momento durante la duración del programa).

También, la mayoría del personal de los Lugares Satélites Para Las Personas Mayores recientemente completaron el Entrenamiento de Sensibilidad cuando se trabaja con personas con discapacidades físicas. Dicha capacitación fue realizada por la organización March of Dimes Canadá. Esto incluye discapacidades físicas, auditivas, o impedimentos visuales. Instructores con el signo de más (+) al lado del nombre de su clase tienen dicha capacitación.
