May 2023

Intergenerational Week in Québec

May 21- May 27, 2023

Intergenerational programming is an opportunity to unite! Children and youth interact meaningfully with seniors to overcome the misconceptions and stereotypes associated with aging, while providing a sense of community for the older generations.

Between 2012 and 2017, AGI offered the Storytelling program whereby students listened to life stories from seniors, then artistically interpreted the story of their choosing. The seniors were given a chance to express themselves and reported feeling heard, while the children learned of love, survival, local and international history, and results were those of performative, musical and visual art.

After the isolating years of the COVID-19 pandemic, AGI is gradually reincorporating intergenerational practices. So far this year we welcomed post-secondary students to the Activity Centre for this winter’s collaboration with the Open Minds, Open Hearts research project, and this summer we will assist the IFMSA INcommunity program in educating pre-medical students on how to interact with people living with dementia.

For People Living with Dementia

Come join our social groups!

AGI's Activity Centre provides therapeutic programs for people with cognitive impairments taking into account each individual’s abilities. 

Our goal is to provide participants with a sense of belonging and of self, a feeling of being productive; empowered, and an opportunity to enjoy leisure activities with their peers.

Furthermore, caregivers can benefit from necessary respite each week. These activities improve the quality of life for individuals living with dementia who have physical, mental, social or emotional limitations by helping them engage in meaningful leisure experiences.

Community Outreach

Visiting Vanier College

On April 24th, two of our counsellors attended the Vanier College Job Fair to represent AGI and advertise our programs, services and all the wonderful work we do.

We were thrilled to have more than 40 students stop by the AGI kiosk throughout the day. Their curiosity and enthusiasm made for a day of connections.

Students are welcome at AGI to do their internship. Please contact us if you're interested or visit our website to see available opportunities.
