Seniors

Windsor Symphony Orchestra – Music for Health

Giving the gift of music uplifts the spirit and brings joy to audiences. For seniors, especially those in low-income housing, it brings more than a smile; it has the power to reduce isolation, promote health and enrich lives.

The Caesars Windsor Cares Music for Health program, created in collaboration with the Windsor Symphony Orchestra, was designed for residents in long-term care facilities in the Windsor-Essex region. Music for Health is based on the positive impact music can have on mental, emotional and physical health. This program features travelling performances by WSO string quartets and quintets at rest homes, retirement homes, and social service agencies across Essex County. An interactive experience, clients are encouraged to participate in the performances using small hand percussion, selecting pieces to perform, as well as sharing their own memories.In its first year, the sponsored program was performed at 13 residences and to over 650 seniors, expanding WSO’s reach and bringing live music right where they live.

Albert Dumochelle, Lifestyle and Program Manager at Chartwell St. Clair Beach: “The Music for Health Program has brightened the lives of our residents. Many of our clients have been orchestra and concert fans their whole lives, but going to the venues for some of them has become difficult or impossible. Music for Health brings the magic of the orchestra to them, which rekindles their love for classical music and brings back great memories. The smiles on everyone's faces is a testament to the success of Music for Health”

Canadian Cancer Society - Wheels of Hope Program

Sometimes getting to appointments can be stressful for many cancer patients. The stress of finding transportation to multiple treatments adds to the hardship of caring for themselves and healing. In Ontario, one in five patients cannot get to their life-saving appointments.

The Canadian Cancer Society of Windsor-Essex’s Wheels of Hope volunteer transportation program helps patients who have no other way of getting to and from cancer-related care. With support from Caesars Windsor Cares, this program provided 4,448 trips to the Windsor Regional Cancer Program for 279 patients. This donation also allowed for long-distance travel to London, Toronto and Hamilton when specialized treatment was required.

Margaret Cadman, Cancer Survivor: “I truly believe that, without the transportation service and the help of the volunteer drivers, I wouldn’t be here today to tell my story.” Unfortunately, cancer has affected so many in our community, including our own employees, their friends and families. The Caesars Windsor Cares program is committed to working with non-profit organizations that support individuals battling and surviving cancer.

Detroit River Canadian Clean Up – Family Fishing Day

Summer memories are rich with excursions to the beach, enjoying a bike ride or spending the day fishing. Encouraging families to reconnect to nature was made easy with the Detroit River Canadian Cleanup’s annual Family Fishing Day event. In partnership with Caesars Windsor Cares, the Detroit River Canadian Cleanup hosted a Learn to Fish event where residents were given equipment and had the opportunity to work one-on-one with a volunteer experts. The fun interactive event engaged families in the sport of fishing and educated them on the importance of water stewardship and protecting our river. Expert anglers shared their passion and helped participants learn new skills, while creating a connection to the Detroit River watershed and their community.

This event took place during Ontario Family Fishing Event week when residents can fish in Ontario without the mandatory license. With the help of volunteers and experts, over 100 participants experienced fishing on the Detroit River! The DRCC also provided information about restoration and cleanup projects, statistics on increasing fish populations and how to safely consume fish from the river.
