A NEW APPROACH TO AGING At age nine or 90, you want your brain to be the best it can be!

We want everyone who is getting older to be free of dementia, to be able to recall their life experiences and recognize the faces of their children and grandchildren.
You can support Baycrest in many different ways… by taking part in exciting events, giving to the Annual Campaign, purchasing tribute cards, and making bequests and major gifts to fund a wide variety of meaningful programs and initiatives.

Baycrest is essential… and donors make it exceptional. Thank you!
