We help older adults feel healthier and happier. Our social purpose is to reduce the risk of social isolation experienced by many low income and rural older adults. Our creative programs and activities also support the work of caregivers, seniors services and housing providers.
We anticipate more older adults will seek more digital involvement and engagement especially during the winter months. Of interest in 2022 – Affordable high-speed Internet for low-income seniors and families
Because of COVID – 19 and the threat of variants, we have started a small digital learning lab to increase the digital literacy skills of key senior volunteers, program facilitators and older adult influencers in our network. Through experiential learning opportunities and at their own pace, older adults learn more about technology to sustain established and develop new digital connections.

For the past 10 years, our network members have assisted municipalities, cultural organizations, service-providers and caregivers in Southwestern Ontario secure resources for community-based research and life enrichment programs for aging populations. We utilize and share our creative resources (developed by older adults for older adults) as powerful interventions to reduce social isolation and strengthen healthy community connections. Using cross-sector strategies, we help facilitate enduring multi-sector partnerships in urban and rural areas.
The United Nations World Health Organization has declared 2020 to 2030. as the Decade of Healthy Aging. It is an opportunity to bring together governments, civil society, international agencies, professionals, academia, the media, and the private sector for ten years of concerted, catalytic and collaborative action to improve the lives of older people, their families, and the communities in which they live.
