Working towards a common vision, and seeing the difference we can make, enables each of us to be happier, healthier, and more connected. Being a good neighbour, being kind to others, and being a volunteer improves our health. Organizing formal and informal care and technology around what’s most important to a person and their care partners helps them live well and adapt better to their challenges.
We are launching a series of community pilots that aim to connect citizens and care partners with neighbours, volunteers, youth, coaches, support and technology to create thriving networks and relationships that last a life-time, where each of us feels cared for and valued.
