The GIVE65 project is helping nonprofits increase their capacity to care for seniors in need so that more seniors can live their final years with dignity and peace of mind.
Pawsativity at St. Peter's will allow patients to participate in activities with therapy dogs - from taking the dogs on walks around St. Peters' beautiful grounds and 'racing' through obstacle courses, to playing games like musical chairs. This will provide weekly interaction for patients across St. Peter's Hospital's 4 units, giving them the opportunity to get some physical and mental exercise with a friendly and furry companion. In the last year, more than 1,000 seniors were treated at St. Peter's Hospital, accounting for 79% of all patients. Interactions with pets have been seen to lower stress levels and improve communication between patients and caregivers as it allows for participation in a shared positive experience.

In WrapAround, communities wrap themselves around people with simultaneous, multiple, complex needs. In Restorative Practice, people in workplaces, churches, schools, and neighbourhoods assume responsibility for their own relational practice. In the Congregational Assistance Plan (CAP) and Employee Assistance Plan (EAP), churches, schools and workplaces provide for mental health care for all of their members. In our attachment counselling work, foster and adoptive parents are positioned as key members of the professional treatment team. In RE-create, artists and volunteers link with at-risk street-involved youth to create hope for a better future.
