An age-friendly community benefits people of all ages. The whole community benefits when everyone lives in security, has sound housing, enjoys good health and continues to participate in society in a meaningful way.
The Phase 3 Age-Friendly Saskatoon Initiative: Implementation and Evaluation report describes community conversations that SCOA held with older adults and key stakeholders and highlights achievements and successes.
One year into implementation there is evidence of the community impact of the activities of the Age-friendly Saskatoon Initiative . New partnerships, programs and services and inclusion of older adults in planning illustrate that the Saskatoon community is responding positively to a growing older adult population.
While much remains to be done, and known challenges prevail, the future is encouraging. The community and its citizens are responding.
