Inspired by an innovative French alternative to traditional living facilities for seniors, a Toronto group is working to create a made-in-Canada version called Baba Yaga Place.
Baba Yaga Place Toronto is an innovative model of living that will support community members to age within their own walls through mutual care and surrounded by like-minded companions, while pursuing both their personal interests and commitment to the broader community.
by Beth Komito-Gottlieb, Baba Yaga Place Interim Chair
At this time of year many of us take stock. We may look back and reflect on our accomplishments and disappointments of the past year. Some compose a newsletter, sharing with loved ones the highlights of the last twelve months. Since those who have been working toward the Baba Yaga Place (BYP) goal have become a family of sorts, it seems fitting that I send out a New Year missive to all of those in the Baba Yaga “family”!
