Our community’s ageing population is growing. That’s why Jewish Federation made it one of our 2020 Strategic Priorities. In 2018, we and six partner agencies hosted the first forum on ageing, Changing Landscapes, which focused on ageing in place, caregiver support and social connections.
Now we are consulting with community members of all ages about what you believe should be the priorities. As a first step, we have launched a two-part online survey that focuses on existing gaps and anticipated needs, followed by the proposed redevelopment of the Louis Brier Home and Hospital.
We want to hear from a broad section of the community: adult children of ageing parents; caregivers of spouses, partners or other family members; those who are currently attending programs and services; and those who are thinking about the future.
Please complete this 10 minute survey, and share it will your family, friends and anyone else that you think should be heard. We hope to present the preliminary results at our second annual Changing Landscapes forum on November 26th.
