Reducing Isolation of Seniors Collective (RISC)
Objective: To measurably reduce the social isolation of seniors
in South and Central Saskatchewan
As a part of the Government of Canada, New Horizons for Seniors Initiative to have a collective impact on reducing isolation of older adults, several groups in Saskatchewan have come together. These include the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan, Canadian Red Cross, Saskatchewan Population Health and Evaluation Research Unit and Saskatchewan Seniors Mechanism. We are also working with the Lifelong Learning Center and the Féderation des aînés fransaskois. We believe that it is possible to make a difference in our communities and in the lives of older adults by working together.
