ALSO Recognizes Commitment to Accessibility with NEW ‘ALGO’ Certification in Windsor Essex

Windsor, April 19th 2024 – Assisted Living Southwestern Ontario is delighted to announce the presentation of our Certificate of Accessibility to HealthFirst Pharmacy Group. This acknowledgment is part of our ALGO program, which stands for Assisted Living Goes Out, recognizing businesses that champion accessibility, diversity, and equality in our community.

At ALSO, our mission is clear and compelling: to be change makers towards equality, diversity, and accessibility. We envision a day when people with physical disabilities fully participate in all aspects of community life as the norm and not the exception.

The journey towards this inclusive future is challenging, yet essential. We are steadfast in our commitment to advocate for systemic change addressing the barriers faced by individuals with disabilities. The ALGO program is our way to acknowledge and celebrate businesses that share our vision and actively contribute to this cause.

“HealthFirst Pharmacy will proudly display the ALGO certificate and designation decals at all our locations across Windsor Essex, symbolizing our commitment to accessibility and inclusivity. We’re proud to work alongside ALSO in the community.” – Dennis Koren, Owner, HealthFirst Pharmacy Group.

ALSO is a not-for-profit organization based in Windsor, providing a diverse range of services to over 1,100 people aged 18 and above with physical disabilities in Windsor Essex County. Despite our efforts, there remains an overwhelming demand for our services, evidenced by our seemingly endless waitlist. By advocating for our clients, we aim to foster a sense of inclusion and create opportunities for meaningful community connections.

We invite everyone to join us in our mission. Whether you are a business, an individual, or an organization, there are numerous ways to support ALSO and make a difference in the lives of people with physical disabilities.

Businesses and organizations chosen will be awarded the ALGO designation monthly and will be featured in social media.
