Ontario PC leader Patrick Brown visits Aptus


Ontario PC leader Patrick Brown visited Aptus Treatment Centre with MPPs Gila Martow and Randy Pettapiece. The Aptus tour was led by participant Ze'ev who has Prader Willi Syndrome, a condition which is a genetic disorder characterized by an insatiable appetite, mental health issues and intellectual disability.

Ze'ev spoke Hebrew to welcome Ms. Martow and then led everyone on a tour through Aptus' multi-sensory rooms, gym spaces, art studio and skills-learning area. Mr. Brown was keen to meet with participants and hear their stories. He requested more information on wait lists for residential and day services for people with developmental disabilities in Ontario.

Aptus appreciates the time taken by Mr. Brown, Mr. Pettapiece and Ms. Martow to learn more about the challenges experienced by families in Ontario and the strengths and achievements of people with developmental disabilities. Visit our photo album from the visit.
