The Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council has just published Helping Seniors Age in Place, A Strategic Framework to Improve Outreach to Edmonton’s Isolated and/or At-Risk Seniors, a collaborative initiative that Mark Holmgren faciliated.
As indicated in the Executive Summary, “The purpose of the collaborative initiative that produced the content for this report was to recommend a strategic framework for the delivery of a made-in-Edmonton model for city-wide access to outreach services to isolated and/or at-risk seniors.
Fourteen (14) senior serving organizations, along with a representative from City of Edmonton FCSS and from the Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council, participated in five strategy sessions.
These sessions were supported by a significant body of research undertaken by the Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council, City of Edmonton Community Services, and others; consultations with seniors and service providers and the breadth of experience of those who sat around the collaborative table.”
