Saskatoon Council on Aging
We measure our community impact through event and program participation, lifelong learning participation, phone and online referrals, web site visits, social media engagement. Programs are evaluated to ensure the needs of older adults are met.
The pandemic has hit older adults particularly hard. They are at high risk to become socially isolated which negatively impacts health and wellness. Your donations help us combat social isolation by connecting older adults through learning technology, phone visits with volunteers and support.
Positive aging for all in an age-friendly community: Positive aging involves maintaining a sense of purpose, having the ability and freedom to make choices, managing stress, staying involved with family and social networks, feeling good about ourselves and continuing to enjoy a self– perceived quality of life. As limitations arise, positive aging continues to be made possible by the availability of ongoing help and support.
