I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you to you for making it possible for me to participate in the aquacize program which I thoroughly enjoyed. It was exactly what I needed for my bad knees and ankle!

Thanks for the wonderful time yesterday. I saw things like the Watson Lodge that I had not seen before. Again thanks to you and your wonderful dedicated team.

About Us

F.O.C.U.S. on Seniors is a not-for-profit, volunteer-driven initiative, designed to support older adults, (55+ years old) in Northeast Calgary.

We serve immigrant newcomers & refugees, visible and racialized minorities, Canadian residents and citizens!

Senior citizen services are provided at low to no cost thanks to the generous support of the ‘1,000 Voices’ at the Genesis Centre, Calgary Public Library and Ethno-Cultural Council of Calgary.

F.O.C.U.S on Seniors began in January 2007 as a grass-root initiative supporting (50 plus) older adults in N.E. Calgary. It operated as an informal volunteer-driven group under the leadership of founder Rossbina Nathoo with strong supporters, Mumtaz Hazari & Karim Khimani.

It gained popularity and momentum with its innovative “spiral engagement approach” and was incorporated as a non-profit organization on 7th July 2011. Thanks to countless volunteers F.O.C.U.S on Seniors strives to offer excellence through ongoing volunteerism.
