Saint Antoine 50+ is a social service organization that offers diverse programs and services to all seniors, as well as other adults in the community. Our mission focuses on enhancing the quality of life of individuals, and we strive every day to break the isolation of people 50+ in the South-West community of Montreal.
At Saint Antoine 50+, we are committed to breaking social isolation and loneliness through community integration; to favoring mutual help; encouraging independence; and preventing premature institutionalization.
We strive to help our Members develop their self-confidence by enhancing our core values. Those qualities are in each individual and must be promoted for them to achieve optimal personal growth and live a more fulfilling life.
The development of self-esteem must guide daily behaviors within the Centre between those providing services and those receiving services
To combat exclusion by building connections and creating meaningful social engagement between older adults and the younger generation
Saint-Antoine has set 3 long-term objectives that adhere to our mission statement and serve as guidelines when we develop Programs for Home Support Services and Centre Activities.
- To assist members to develop healthy lifestyles by providing programming that raises awareness of healthy practices and providing them with access and advocacy for health services. Together we aim to promote optimal physical, emotional and mental health.
- To improve the quality of life for the less autonomous by providing, referring and/or advocating for a range of home and community-based support services.
- To foster and strengthen a sense of belonging, self-worth, and self-respect among members by providing opportunities and developmental activities to interact, contribute and share experiences in a safe environment.
To achieve these goals, we offer activities in the premises of the center and around the home support.
Saint-Antoine has 23 subsidized apartments for seniors.
