This Toolkit is a resource to help organizations and service providers adopt approaches to help Indigenous seniors strengthen human connections. Social isolation is a silent reality experienced by many seniors, and particularly Indigenous seniors. It is hoped that this resource will heighten awareness and sensitivity and help organizations address their particular social needs.
This is a supplement toolkit which should be read in conjunction with two other documents published by the Federal, Provincial and Territorial (FPT) Ministers Responsible for Seniors documents: Social Isolation of Seniors: Volume I – Understanding the Issue and Finding Solutions provides an overview of social isolation among seniors in Canada, Social Isolation: Volume II — Ideas Exchange Event Toolkit provides hands-on resources for groups. It is available as a webpage (see attached website link) or as a PDF (see attached document).
