The Centre for Studies in Aging & Health at Providence Care (CSAH) and the Seniors Health Knowledge Network (SHKN) are pleased to announce our newest collaborative venture: our combined web sites. As one of our valuable partners, SHKN, has joined us in many collaborative initiatives to provide resources and learning experiences for a vast array of topics, audiences and projects. SHKN provides a rich knowledge exchange experience through their networking, newsletters and webinars, distributed through their online membership and Communities of Practice.
Highlighting the launch of our joint website is the announcement of the Age Friendly Communities Initiative (AFC), funded by the Ontario Seniors Secretariat. This collective of engaged and active communities across Ontario are being mentored and supported. An Age-Friendly Community (AFC) is a community where policies, services and physical spaces are designed to enable people of all ages to live in a secure and accessible physical and social environment. Find out more about how you can get involved in the AFC Initiative!
