Join the celebration - October is Community Support Month

Hundreds of not-for-profit organizations across Ontario, like PACE, have been supporting people with disabilities and seniors all year – this month, we’re looking to increase awareness of the important services we provide.

October is Community Support month, an opportunity to celebrate the home and community care services which help over a million Ontarians live independently in their own homes each year.  In addition to Attendant Services (Supportive housing and Attendant Outreach), there are over 25 different community support services, including Meals on Wheels, Alzheimer and adult day programs, transportation to medical appointments, friendly visiting, caregiver support, hospice and palliative care services, and much more.

Important facts about PACE:

  • In Toronto, PACE Independent Living has been serving the community for over thirty seven years in delivering support services to individuals with disabilities who chose to live independent lives. 
  • We serve more than 323 individuals who have a variety of disabilities including multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injuries, acquired brain injuries, muscular dystrophy and Huntington disease.

A big thank goes out to the PACE team during this time of celebration for the incredible work that each of you do every day

to deliver excellent support services to people with disabilities so they can live their lives.
