About Seniors Life Enhancement Centres

Seniors Life Enhancement Centres is a progressive non-profit adult day program located in Oakville located close to Winston-Churchill Blvd and the QEW serving residents from across the Mississauga and Halton Regions. Our Vision is about “Transforming Lives through Purposeful Living” founded in the values of Believing anything is possible, Love and Excellence.

We provide Adult Day Programming services during the day for seniors at our Centre who have memory impairments, frailties, and/or are physically disabled.

Along with offering support for ADL, our staff are involved in the provision of an array of health support services and assisted social/recreational programming enriching the lives of our clients while offering respite to their families.

Route Details

The TGP Team Walk allows you to register a team and fundraise as always, but with the freedom on Event Day to:

  • Walk the distance you want
  • When you want
  • Where you want

Most teams will decide to walk in the morning, choosing between 1 km or 5 km distances, likely on a paved park pathway or equivalent. Many will end with a small Covid-friendly celebration afterward (lunch, tea, barbeque, etc.).


What to Bring

A few common sense suggestions:

  • A cell phone for emergencies (recommended but not required)
  • A face mask
  • Your walking shoes
  • Snacks in case you get hungry
  • Your own water bottle, filled with icy cold water
  • Warm layers with moisture-repelling clothing in case it's cold or windy. Mid-September be be cold with rain and wind. The weather might also be gorgeous and sunny. Be sure to keep your eye on the forecast!
