Seniors & Isolation Pilot Projects

SSM with funding from New Horizons for Seniors, embarked on pilot project in three Saskatchewan Communities aimed at alleviating social isolation for older adults living in rural communities.  Our goal was to develop a prgram which could be volunteer-led by seniors within the local community, thus promoting volunteerism among the older adults.  Programming was designed by the community so it would best fit their needs.

The three communities involved in the pilot projects are Hanley, Strasbourg and Lumsden.  Presentations at the SSM conference are below.
