 Can You Lend A Helping Hand?

Despite all the changes that COVID has brought, our mission remains the same, to empower our clients to live safely and independently at home and out of hospitals and long-term care.

 Community Care has been there to lend a helping hand, never missing a day of service to our clients.  Although we continue to lead forward from the COVID crisis to recovery, we are also mindful of what the future will bring.  We have seen a surge in the need for our programs and our local communities are also growing.    Community Care is striving to build abundance so that we can meet these growing needs now and in the future too.

Grandparent of the Year 2023 - Our Intergenerational Program

It’s the 35th anniversary of our annual Grandparent of the Year event! Nominations are now being reviewed from children in grades 2 to 6 from across the City and County of Peterborough to recognize a Grandparent, Elder, or a special older person in their life for this honour.

Participants submitted a hand-drawn picture of themselves with their nominee as well as a piece of writing about their relationship with their nominee. We accepted entries in both English and French.

A committee will be selecting one winner and one honourable mention from each group of grades; primary and junior. The primary is Grades 2 & 3. Junior is in Grades 4, 5, & 6.

Awards ceremony will be on Tuesday, June 6, 2023! We look forward to celebrating soon.

Looking to Stay Active?

Our wide variety of fitness classes may be just the right challenge for you.

Our instructors offer both in-person and online classes (via Zoom) for a range of abilities, from gentle yoga and chair classes right up to advanced cardio classes with weights. Classes are offered free to residents of Peterborough County who are +55 years. 

A participant, Lynn, who recently tried an advanced exercise class with us shared:

“I thought the classes would be too easy, but this is exactly the kind of class I have been looking for throughout the Kawarthas. Thank you so much for running this class!”
