Connecting Older Adults
The CRD has launched a new map to highlight the services, facilities and places that provide opportunities for social connection among older adults.
By identifying places for recreation, lifelong learning, volunteering, support groups and social centres, the goal of the map is to support social connections. By visually linking these places with information on public transit, the map is a tool that can be used by older adults, their families and their caregivers across the capital region.
Increasing social connectedness is a common goal identified by the CRD and its partners at the Eldercare Foundation, Island Health, BC Healthy Communities, and the United Way of Greater Victoria.
The map is part of the Active Transportation & Healthy Communities Program which aims to encourage and support residents to walk, cycle and roll more often – made possible through the Victoria Foundation and the CRD Traffic Safety Commission.
