Where do you imagine yourself living during your retirement years? Like most older adults, you likely wish to remain at home. Aging in place is all abuzz and with good reasons; however, in the absence of an effective approach that ensures access to services and supportive care when required, it remains challenging for some to remain in their home. This webinar will introduce an innovative model which puts forward the concept that long term care facilities (LTCFs) could expand services in their local communities to include older adults who are aging in place. With additional resources, LTCFs could support older adults and their families navigate the system, offer social health initiatives, provide some services/care and promote healthy aging. The model is currently being piloted in New Brunswick in four rural communities.
