    Benefits of Creative Aging

    Living in an era of longevity compels us to rethink historically accepted notions about aging. Adopting a creative aging framework can reframe our understanding about who may benefit from participating in Senior Active Living Centre programs, the ways in which they might benefit and the specific nature of programs that can be expected to increase social engagement, contribute to skills mastery and enhance well-being. As a result, a creative aging approach may support building capacity in the centres.

    Building Strategic Partnerships

    Meeting the complex and varied needs of seniors and older adults is often dependent on a coordinated network of community-based agencies.  In order to better serve our members, we need partnerships for funding, advocacy and service delivery. We live in an environment of great complexity, accelerated change, and unprecedented competition for resources. In response to these conditions, this workshop will explore new ways of doing things.

    Presentor: Albert Brulé, Impact Consulting, Pillar Nonprofit Network
