Age-friendly community stories

In the summer of 2011, Centre on Aging staff conducted community interviews. Additional updates were provided by the Age-Friendly Manitoba Resource Team. This booklet gives communities an idea of what has been happening with other communities since joining the Age-Friendly Manitoba Initiative.

Only those communities who provided updates are included in the booklet.

Summaries

Age-Friendly Manitoba Initiative communities are provided with an opportunity to participate in a community consultation as a way of identifying priorities.
By the end of March 2011, the Age-Friendly CURA team conducted consultations in 46 communities.

During the community consultations, which are facilitated by CURA staff, people are invited to discuss their views on how age-friendly their community is and what areas need improvement. Prior to the group discussion, a survey is distributed to get individual views on how age-friendly the community is.
Forty-nine (49) communities completed an age-friendly survey for a total of 1274 surveys.

Summarized and organized by theme are the collective group discussions and survey responses.
