- SENIORS (sampaguita and 55+sers)
With the aim to service our Seniors in BC, two groups are created
1. The MHHS Richmond 55+sers Group is an outreach program on health & wellness of the Multicultural Helping House Society, a non-profit & charitable Society.
The workshops have been well-received, with inquiries about membership continuing to pour in across other cultural groups given the eclectic, fun, and interactive activities and group workshops. A holistic range of activities have been programmed and scheduled accordingly every Saturday.
These activities include:
- Zumba Dance – Exercise Workout SeriesHatha-Yoga-300x225
- Laughing Yoga
- Cultural Dance Workshop Series
- Tai-Chi and Mind-Body Grounding Series
- Team-building and Community Awareness Workshop Series
- Mind Games
- Healthy Eating Workshops
- Music and Art Therapy
- Leadership Skills Workshop Series
- Community Outreach Activities
Certified and seasoned facilitators have been tapped to deliver the components of the program, with careful planning given to workshop delivery from set-up, preparation, to actual implementation in view of providing the participants a comfortable, convenient environment where they can participate meaningfully.
Regular Saturday activities/workshops are held from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM at the 2nd Floor, 6910 No. 3 Road Richmond (across the Richmond City Hall) followed by a perfect post-workshop gathering where members get to share ideas, discuss anticipated projects, and overall build healthy camaraderie.

2. MHHS Sampaguita (Vancouver)
Seniors have as much varying needs as any age group coming to Canada. The program addresses issues facing seniors and their families including gaining access to government and community services, and battling social isolation. The regular activities provided by the MHHS-NRC Seniors Program provide members and clients a chance to socialize, to learn, and continue to be productive members of society.
The program is primarily designed to help seniors fully participate in the community, embrace diversity, and empower them to get involved and be leaders.
The Seniors Program provides members with access to information regarding:
- Medical services
- Family relationships
- Wills and Estate planning
- Banking and Insurance
The Seniors Program provides members a venue for workshops on various topics such as health, leadership, estate planning, and connecting with service providers, among others. Endearingly called as “Kapihan” or socializing over a cup of coffee, these activities provide seniors a regular outlet to share their ideas and learn from their peers. The Kapihan activities also serve as a fun way for the seniors to get together in the form of dancing, singing, cooking, cultural exchange, partnering with the youth, recognizing individuals, and celebrating milestones.
Workshops and Special Events
Apart from its more informal venue under the Kapihan activities, the MHHS-NRC Seniors Program provides formal workshops focused on training and practical information on diverse topics.
The program also prepares events for seniors to celebrate special occasions such as Thanksgiving, Halloween, Valentines, Christmas, and Easter. The program also organizes field trips, excursions and picnic, all on pot luck basis. Seniors program members are also invited to participate as performers in cultural shows, community events and festivals.
