The Senior Friendly™ Program

developed in 1999 has been revised and aligned as age friendly community programs. The aim is the same- raise awareness, educate, connect, listen, include and represent the voice of older adults.

Our LetsStopAgeism Campaign was initially funded by the Seniors and Housing ministry- now volunteer run. Our community programs reflect dementia promising practice as the more awareness and knowledge we all have about dementia the more inclusive our communities will be. Financial Literacy from pre retirement to avoiding scams is key and is a strong focus during pandemic, as is how to stay well in these challenging times- Living Strong
