Making Connections Building Networks to Prevent Abuse of Older Adults

The Building Networks and Leading the Way are two efforts by the Northwest Territories Seniors' Society to prevent the abuse of older adults. The objectives of this project are:

  • To identify recent/current elder abuse awareness, intervention, prevention practices in the various regions of the Northwest Territories;
  • To facilitate the establishment of information networks and share information on best/promising practice to address all aspects of elder abuse in the various regions of the Northwest Territories;
  • To develop support networks for those involved in addressing elder abuse in the various regions of the Northwest Territories.

    This research document was carried out by Lutra Associates Ltd, who were contracted by the Society to carry out this work.

i2i 4"This Intergenerational Community Toolkit gives background and assistance in planning, implementing and sustaining engaging intergenerational activities in community, health care, and school.

The BC Ministry of Healthy Living and Sport selected the Meadows School Intergenerational Immersion Project™ to be showcased in its Case Studies of Community Actions in Active Aging report in 2008. Subsequently, Sharon MacKenzie, founding educator of the Meadows School Project™ and long time advocate of intergenerational community-connected learning, was asked to author a toolkit for educators and service providers for use in promoting age-friendly communities through a wide variety of intergenerational connections. The final collaborative toolkit (BC Ministry of Health, BC Care Providers Assoc.) was launched May 2009."

Age Friendly Workplaces Promoting Older Worker Participation

"From the Federal/Provincial/Territorial Ministers Responsible for Seniors Forum. These documents have been jointly prepared by the Federal/Provincial/Territorial Ministers Responsible for Seniors Forum. The Forum is an intergovernmental body established to share information, discuss new and emerging issues related to seniors, and work collaboratively on key projects. Québec’s participation in the development of this document was aimed at sharing expertise, information and best practices. However, Québec does not subscribe to, or take part in, an integrated pan-Canadian approach in this field and intends to fully assume its responsibilities for seniors in Québec."
