Hosted by the Ontario Age-Friendly Communities Outreach Program on November 20, 2019.
Presenters:  Bonnie Schroeder & Pat Spadafora

Key Themes: Duality & Sustainability

Over the last four years, Hamilton and Ottawa have been engaged in mobilizing their partners to reduce social isolation among older adults in their communities.
As the project funding from Employment and Social Development Canada comes to an end, each project is focused on sustaining specific activities partnerships and outcomes. The presenters reflect on concepts of:

  • Isolation and inclusion
  • Universal programs and targeted programs to reduce social isolation among vulnerable populations of seniors (seniors who are low-income, multicultural, at risk for abuse, living in rural communities, living with disabilities, etc.)
  • Grassroot and system/policy approaches to sustain the activities and outcomes
