COMMUNITY CONNECTIONS - FACILITATING SOCIAL CONNECTIONS FOR SOCIALLY ISOLATED SENIORS
Hamilton Seniors Isolation Impact Plan (HSIIP)
The HSIIP is comprised of seven collaborating organizations in Greater Hamilton, who will work together to reduce social isolation among seniors in our community. These partners include a backbone organization that will guide the project vision and strategy and help align existing activities (Hamilton Council on Aging), a research centre that will link community partners, stakeholders, and older people in a participatory research initiative (Gilbrea Centre for Studies in Aging, McMaster University), an interactive tool that will join all community support sector agencies in Hamilton (Thrive Group), community connectors (Wesley Urban Ministries), peer connectors (YWCA Hamilton), and hospital connectors (St. Joseph’s Home Care, AbleLiving Services) that will work to connect individuals in need with existing services and social opportunities across the Greater Hamilton area
