Toolkit: Social isolation of seniors - Volume 1 - Understanding the issue and finding solutions

resource image

This volume is the first of two documents produced by the Forum of Federal/Provincial/Territorial Ministers Responsible for Seniors to help organizations and
individuals approach the social isolation of seniors. It updates and builds upon to Working Together for Seniors: A Toolkit to Promote Seniors’ Social Integration in Community Services, Programs, and Policies (2007) also produced by the Forum.

The purpose of this volume is to:
1) raise awareness about social isolation among seniors;
2) introduce some useful concepts related to social innovation; and
3) show how social innovation can help to address social isolation
in Canadian communities through examples.

A complementary document, Volume II: Ideas Exchange Event Toolkit, presents tools to help individuals and organizations develop lasting community partnerships
to reduce the social isolation of seniors.
