Revera has built a more than 50-year legacy of enabling seniors to live their lives to the fullest. This commitment goes beyond our residents and clients. It extends to the communities in which we live and work through Revera Giving, our community involvement program.
Our program includes three key areas of focus:
Age is More: Age is More
is the name of Revera’s social initiative to challenge ageism – the negative attitudes, stereotypes and preconceptions that prevent older persons from living their lives to the fullest. More than simply shedding light on the obstacles of ageism, Age is More
is also about showcasing and celebrating the ageless spirit of people.
In partnership with the International Federation on Ageing, Revera has developed the Revera Report on Ageism.

Community in Action:
Our Revera Giving - Community in Action
program is about supporting the causes and organizations that matter most to our communities, clients and employees, and that ultimately help seniors live their lives to the fullest.
In addition to site-specific fundraisers, all Revera residences, homes and the Support Office raise funds for Alzheimer’s disease education and community support through Celebrating Memories, our annual fundraising campaign. Held throughout the year, all funds raised during this campaign go directly to local chapters of the Alzheimer Society of Canada. In 2017, we’ve held a number of events across the country, including a Charity Concert & Social with Men in Suits
which, through the help of our platinum sponsors, raised more than $35,000 for this important cause. To read more about this event, please click here
From the Heart: Revera Giving - From the Heart
is all about encouraging and recognizing employees who go above and beyond to give their time to local charities to help make their communities stronger. Through From the Heart
, employees who volunteer their personal time to support a registered charity can apply for a grant of $100. This grant will be donated to that charity on their behalf.
