The centre promotes a “senior helping senior” approach to service delivery. The goal of Almage is to improve the quality of life of seniors who live independently. The programs and services are designed to enhance their dignity, support their independence and encourage their community involvement.
Almage is the only resource available to the English senior residents of the eastern tip of the Island of Montreal. It is a population that has undergone some emotional, political, and economical changes in the past three decades.
What began as a centre offering services two days a week with a membership of 50, is now offering services five days a week to 250 members. Today, Almage is proud to be fully independent and has extended its services to 2 Satellite Centres (Rosemont & Montreal-North) where they each offer 1 day per week programs.
The Almage Senior Community Centre offers diverse services. The programs, activities and services cover health promotion, educational, education, recreational and social integration, and senior support services. Most programs are offered free of charge.
A membership is always required to take part in Almage activities and / or programs. The membership for the year is $25.00
