Age-friendly Communities Initiatives

projects and reportsWe want Age-friendly Islands!

Through a grant from the Union of BC Municipalities’ Seniors Support and Housing Initiative, an assessment of Hornby and Denman Islands as Age-friendly communities was initiated by our Society. The intention of this project was to assist us in assessing the current needs of our seniors in order to plan ways to support independence and wellness in the future.

The first phase of the project is complete; the results of a community survey and focus groups have been compiled, along with an analysis of population statistics and a comprehensive report has been written by Shari Dunnet, Gerald Hodge and Wendy Johnstone.
