Don’t feel ready to seek out support and get out of your isolation? For many immigrants talking about feelings and seeking help is a challenge they must first overcome in order to feel less isolated.

Social isolation is a reality experienced by many seniors and particularly immigrant and refugee seniors. Even though it is not easy to recognize, it has significant health, social, and economic consequences. The Government of Canada has taken an active interest in the issue of social isolation as have provincial governments. At the community level, several organizations individually and in partnerships, have been actively engaged in offering programs and services to seniors at risk for social isolation.

This chapter of Women in Canada examines many aspects related to senior women in Canada, including their socio-demographic characteristics, life expectancy, living arrangements, social participation, Internet use, health, assistance with daily living and leading causes of death, as well as economic characteristics such as their labour force participation and income. The focus will be on recent patterns, with discussion of historical trends where appropriate, including selected analysis by ethnocultural diversity, Aboriginal identity and geographic region.

This presentation describes a framework for assessing the extent to which senior friendly principles are present in hospitals and the results of a recent survey of all hospitals in Ontario. The new Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria is the first purpose-build Senior Friendly Hospital in Canada. Some of the environmental design features incorporated in it are illustrated.
