Taking Charge: New Models for Aging in Place, Designed by Seniors, for Seniors @ Online
Jun 14 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Taking Charge: New models for Aging in Place, Designed by Seniors, for Seniors, is a research-through-storytelling project aimed at uncovering grassroots models of seniors’ supportive living that are emerging across Canada and the United States. It employs a lead user approach to explore initiatives that address the issues of aging in place and senior social isolation, and presents a distillation of key insights and emergent principles extracted from ethnographic site visits.

In this webinar you will hear four case studies:

  • Homesharing
  • Seniors cohousing
  • Naturally occurring retirement communities with supportive service program (NORC-SSP)
  • Virtual villages.

Each case study includes audio documentaries of user experiences, and photographic documentation of community life.

This webinar is hosted by the Ontario Age-Friendly Communities Outreach Program.

Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities: The OASIS Model @ Online
Jun 28 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Oasis is a grass-roots developed program for seniors operating out of a privately owned and operated apartment building in central Kingston.

Since its inception in 2008, Oasis has rested on the philosophy that the seniors who choose to become members of Oasis have an integral role to play in determining their own programming. Oasis focuses on the social determinants of health common to all seniors, including social inclusion, physical activity, good nutrition and enhanced health and social service navigation.

Recently, Oasis has gained province-wide recognition as a successful alternative housing model for older adults who often cannot afford private residential care.

In this webinar, the presenter will:

  • Review the Oasis structure and core partnerships necessary to keep it true to its mandate
  • Describe upcoming research projects, conducted in partnership with faculty of the Queen’s School of Rehabilitation Therapy and focused on the expansion and evaluation of Oasis.

This webinar is hosted by the Ontario Age-Friendly Communities Outreach Program.
