socisolationlgbtq coverSupplement to the Social Isolation of Seniors toolkit

This supplement is a resource to help organizations and service providers adopt approaches to help lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQf) seniors strengthen human connections. Social isolation is a silent reality experienced by many seniors, particularly LGBTQ seniors. It is hoped that this resource will heighten awareness and sensitivity and help organizations address LGBTQ seniors’ particular social needs.

The materials included in this supplement are drawn from current research, stakeholder consultations (including a workshop), an environmental scan of existing programs and services, and the lived experiences of LGBTQ seniors. This supplement consists of two parts: Part 1 explores social isolation from the perspective of LGBTQ seniors and Part 2 provides practical tools and resources to encourage human connections to reduce social isolation.

igprogrammecover newbrunwick''Intergenerational programs and activities that bridge the generation gap help to break down barriers among people of varying ages and address issues such as social isolation, ageism, and misunderstanding. Creating supportive environments which enhance opportunities for the sharing of ideas, knowledge and experience will build upon community strengths and move New Brunswick toward creating more Age-Friendly Communities (AFC).

This Intergenerational Toolkit will help communities and organizations to engage children, youth and seniors in effectively hosting intergenerational projects. It contains practical information and resources to support educators, care providers, community groups and agencies in coordinating successful intergenerational initiatives.''
