Aging Well Penticton is a partnership of community organizations and government partners that came together in the fall of 2019 to reduce the social isolation and loneliness of seniors in Penticton. With multi-year funding from Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program, the partners have launched projects to expand personal outreach and better access to physical recreation, social outings, intergenerational programs, volunteering, grief and loss counselling, supports for family caregivers, and mental wellness supports. The project has invested $410,000 in community programs, and developing coordinated responses to support seniors during the COVID-19 pandemic. The partners meet monthly and work together to develop and implement a community impact plan that provides seniors with more opportunities to be active, connected and engaged in Penticton.
