On this webpage, we are building resources for inspiration and strategies for supporting seniors through and within faith communities.

We encourage readers to send us ideas for blogs, or to volunteer to write one yourself. See our email address in the banner at the top of each page. We especially want to hear about promoting home sharing and alternative housing options and sharing strategies for reaching out to enhance intergenerational connections.

In Summer of 2017, Hamilton Aging Together led three interfaith meetings to address the topic: Strengthening Connections for Older Adults through Faith Communities
