Non-medical Supports Improve the Well-being of Older Adults

To support Alberta’s healthcare system and challenges faced during the Covid-19 pandemic, Healthy Aging Alberta stewarded an investment in three one-year projects to provide non-medical community and home supports for older adults.

These projects were in geographic areas with:

  • A high demand for health-promoting non-medical services
  • Readiness by community-based senior serving organizations to maintain and/or increase services
  • A high number of older adults
  • Hospitals that experienced capacity challenges

The investment's regional and collective impact was assessed through a standardized data collection process established through a Community of Practice that supported overall project implementation.

On September 12, 2023 Healthy Aging Alberta was pleased to host a panel discussion sharing the exciting results, successes and learnings of this collaborative work. You can view the recording of this discussion HERE.

If you would like to contact our panelists for more information about their project, they would be happy to answer your questions:

We are also happy to share an Executive Summary and detailed Final Report.

Learnings from this project influenced current work in communities involved in facilitating the building of provincial models for community and home supports, and social prescribing.
