Declaration of the Community-Based Seniors’ Services Sector in BC and 20 Strategies for Outreach/Engagement

B. McMillan
Description / Summary

One of the mechanisms employed for increasing the capacity of CBSS is to unite under a shared Declaration that recognizes the importance of CBSS health promotion and prevention work, and the need for capacity building. This Declaration also acknowledges the importance of closer collaboration between non-profits, municipalities and the provincial health system to maximize the potential for older adults to “age in place” and remain in their own
homes and communities for as long as possible.

This resource includes a list of 20 strategies for using the CBSS Declaration for outreach and engagement with both groups and individuals, along with a variety of ideas to support the strategies.
