Age-friendly communities help seniors remain engaged in their communities by developing supportive built and social environments that facilitate exercise, social connection, and respect for seniors. The Alberta Age-Friendly Community of Practice will examine social isolation as a risk factor for frailty in this session. Speakers will provide examples from communities across Alberta that help prevent or address frailty by addressing social isolation under two of the age-friendly domains: social participation and respect and social inclusion. This session will include time for discussion and provide attendees with ideas and information on addressing social isolation in their community, including a digital resource on Age-friendly programs and initiatives that address/prevent frailty.
More information on guest speakers will be available soon!
