According to Dr. Ellen Ryan (gerontologist with Hamilton Aging in Community), agencies entrusted with protecting and serving seniors have an ethical and moral responsibility to provide equitable care and resources to Muslim seniors in order to afford them quality health, well-being, and social participation. “We have organized the upcoming Forum on Supporting Muslim Seniors and their Families so that service providers and Hamilton-area residents can learn how to improve services directed to this underserved group,” said Dr. Ryan.
