DO YOU WANT A BETTER FUTURE FOR OLDER ADULTS IN SK?

Thank you for your input via our survey! 

SSM received over 2000 responses!

Saskatchewan does not have a seniors’ strategy, despite the fact that the percentage of the population 55 and over is approximately 27% and is projected to increase to 34% by 2038. The only resource in government specifically dedicated to seniors is one consultant position in the Community Care Branch of the Ministry of Health. Because SSM is concerned that there is insufficient structure and strategy, we are doing research to determine what should be included in the framework of a seniors’ strategy for Saskatchewan. We held forums and focus groups with 600+ people around the province. We also did a survey with more than 2000 responses. The survey responses are now being collated in order to determine the priorities.
