Social isolation of seniors.: Em12-12/2-2016E-PDF

"The previous document, Social Isolation of Seniors: Volume I – Understanding the Issue and Finding Solutions, gives an overview of social isolation among seniors. It identifies the core principles of social innovation and how they can be used to address social isolation, and also gives examples of socially innovative approaches in Canadian communities. To support people and organizations who work towards or would like to become involved in preventing the social inclusion of seniors, the Forum of Federal/Provincial/Territorial Ministers Responsible for Seniors has developed this second volume — Ideas Exchange Event Toolkit. This toolkit is meant to help people and organizations host effective meetings to exchange ideas and respond to the social isolation of seniors in their communities. It contains tools, templates and support resources for hosting an ideas exchange event”--p. 31.
