Let's tell our representatives

that engagement, care and quality of life should not have an age limit

I support age-friendly communities, with structures and services that promote access, civic engagement and overall quality of life for older residents.

Our seniors deserve our attention and respect. I urge municipal politicians to enact the policies, practices and planning that will achieve this, as such action will benefit us all.

Because engagement, care and quality of life should not have an age limit.

Geriatric training

Canada is falling behind in recognizing and preparing its health and social care professionals to meet the growing need for geriatric expertise.
