McMaster Aging Portal

McMaster Optimal Aging Portal

As part of our LiveWell partnership, McMaster has set up a link specific for the YMCA to view the Optimal Aging Portal. This fantastic site is filled with evidence based information on health and aging.

Please note that between December 1 - 8 YMCA branches will each have an early closure to give all our YMCA teams an opportunity to celebrate the holidays. Thank you for your understanding.​ Click here to see the dates and times.
