A Year in Review April 1, 2019 – March 31,2020

United Way of the Lower Mainland
From United Way
Description / Summary

The 2019-20 Healthy Aging Year in Review highlights some of the key initiatives and vital work that has occurred, including the introduction of Integrated Community-Based Programs for Older Adults with Higher Needs, the second annual Provincial Summit on Aging, the expansion of the Healthy Aging CORE knowledge hub and the creation of the “Safe Seniors, Strong Communities” initiative, a rapid emergency response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The growth and innovation of the CBSS (Community-based Seniors' Services) sector's work and the acknowledgement of the importance of recognizing and valuing older British Columbians is something the United Way of the Lower Mainland and the CBSS Leadership Council most proud of.

Healthy Aging by United Way helps B.C. seniors stay at home and in their own communities for longer by centering on three objectives: keeping older British Columbians active, connected, and engaged.
