Social isolation of seniors.: Em12-12/1-2016E-PDF
"This volume is the first of two documents produced by the Forum of Federal/Provincial/Territorial Ministers Responsible for Seniors to help organizations and individuals approach the social isolation of seniors. It updates and builds upon Working Together for Seniors: A Toolkit to Promote Seniors’ Social Integration in Community Services, Programs, and Policies (2007), also produced by the Forum. The purpose of this volume is to: 1) raise awareness about social isolation among seniors; 2) introduce some useful concepts related to social innovation; and 3) show how social innovation can help to address social isolation in Canadian communities through examples. A complementary document, Volume II: Ideas Exchange Event Toolkit presents tools to help individuals and organizations develop lasting community partnerships to reduce the social isolation of seniors”--Purpose, p. 3.
