Scotiabank Learning Centre

Welcome to our Scotiabank Learning Centre – a multi-faceted resource centre for families learning to cope with life-altering illnesses such as diabetes, stroke, heart disease, dementia, arthritis and Parkinson’s.

The Centre is organized into a variety of zones allowing people the flexibility to research, request and/or take away information that is relevant, current and applicable for each unique situation.

Our Centre is equipped with:

  • Computer work stations
  • A meeting table for support groups and education forums for caregivers
  • A media centre and leisure space with a 52-inch flat screen TV, a Nintendo Wii inter-active video game for leisure or rehab play
  • A play area for visiting children
  • A private room with an additional computer and phone available
  • An Outdoor garden

Caregiver Support Groups

We hold three monthly support groups. Group meetings consist of ‘round table’ discussions on topics relating to dementia and caregiving. Participants enjoy meeting new friends and sharing their thoughts, ideas and helpful hints for caring for someone with dementia. Upon request, we can provide individual family sessions.

Education Sessions

We also offer several monthly group education sessions and self-help series, such as Living with Stroke, and Living with Stroke and Aphasia.

All services are free-of-charge. To register for one of these programs, call 416-285-3810 and leave a message on our Hotline. Your call will be returned within 24 hours.
