In terms of healthy living, we collaborate with other ethnic organizations to deliver groceries to elderly people of color in communities across Alberta, ensuring their safety and nourishment. We also provide a platform for professionals to offer health, nutrition, fitness, and dietary talks directly to Afro-Canadian seniors from various countries in Africa, the Caribbean, and Haiti living in Calgary.
Engaging living is centered around combating isolation and building relationships among home-bound seniors. We organize online and face-to-face social events to promote engagement and connections among black seniors and other members of their community. Additionally, we strive to strengthen inter-generational bonds between seniors and young Albertans.
Our Seniors Need You
Healthy living is about food, body, & soul.
The BTO Foundation plans to collaborate with various ethnic organizations to distribute groceries to elderly individuals of color, ensuring their safety and well-being in communities throughout Alberta.
Additionally, our organization will establish a platform for professionals to directly engage with Afro-Canadian seniors from Africa, the Caribbean, and Haiti residing in Calgary, offering informative sessions on health, nutrition, fitness, and dietary topics.
Engaging living is about relationships.
Elderly individuals who are unable to leave their homes are facing increased risks both before and after the Covid-19 pandemic. One of the main concerns is the potential for isolation, as many seniors lack access to technology that would allow them to stay connected with the outside world. This isolation can have negative impacts on their overall physical and mental health. In order to address these challenges, the BTO Foundation has developed a plan to organize social events both online and in person.
These events aim to promote engagement and foster relationships among black seniors and other members of their community. Additionally, the foundation is working towards enhancing inter-generational connections between seniors and young individuals in Alberta.
Nostalgic living is about old days in the present world.
Afro-Canadian seniors from various African countries, the Caribbean, and Haiti possess a wealth of education and diverse interests. Despite their age, they are still eager to enjoy life and pursue their passions. However, as our surroundings evolve rapidly, these seniors often feel left behind or overlooked.
In response, the BTO Foundation aims to collaborate with IT professionals to provide Afro-Canadian seniors from Africa, the Caribbean, and Haiti with accessible methods to reconnect with their loved ones and friends.
