Today and in the Future
Life After Fifty (LAF) is a charitable, non-for-profit, organization and designated Seniors Active Living Centre providing activities for adults fifty and over. We have been a consistent source of seniors programming in our community since 1962. Regular weekly programs fall under three core categories: Health and Wellness (“Be fit!”), Skills Development and Hobbies (“Be well!”), and Personal Connections (“Be social!”).
We have two Seniors Active Living Centres (SALC) in the City of Windsor that offer 120 regularly scheduled programs each week. Our West Side Centre (WSC) is located on McEwan Avenue and our East Side Centre (ESC) is located inside The WFCU Centre on McHugh Street. Both facilities meet convenience and wellness standards, including: street-level locations for accessibility, offers free parking, on a bus route, and bike racks. The Membership fee is $12.50/month, however, you can come in for a tour and try us for a week free of charge.
Our agency provides Community Support Services including friendly visiting, telephone assurance, foot care and home maintenance supports to at-risk older adults living at home. These services are designed to keep seniors living at home safely and independently for as long as possible.
Outreach services are provided to adults 50+ living in low income apartment buildings who experience physical, economic, social and cultural barriers to attending programs at site-based locations. The program aims to reduce and prevent social isolation, loss of support networks, physical mobility, and other health and mental health issues that seniors experience.
Through “Our West End” initiative, we are helping to improve neighbourhoods in the West End.
Life After Fifty is always working to meet the need of seniors in our community. As we move forward, we will continue to evaluate our services to ensure that we remain accessible, relevant and beneficial to our valued members and the community.
Leading the way to vibrant and healthy lives.

Please enjoy some quotes from our Members:
“This is Windsor’s best kept secret. If we didn’t have this place, we’d just be sitting at home.”
“The reason I’m now in a happy state of mind is because of Life After Fifty. I have a new purpose in life, a reason to get up and dressed in the morning.”
“I now come to the Centre 2-4 times a week. I haven’t been this happy in years.”
