Caredove

One of the main goals of the Hamilton Seniors Isolation Impact Plan (HSIIP) is connecting our city’s seniors with the health and community services they need, easily and quickly. Caredove is an interactive, one-stop web-based resource centre and easy referral system that links seniors and their advocates to community support services.

Social Isolation in Late Life

Social isolation among seniors and older people, both in Canada and in other countries with aging populations, has been recognized as a concern for several decades. But in spite of volumes of research across disciplines such as social work, medicine, psychology, and policy, there is still strikingly little consensus about how to best address social isolation among one of our most vulnerable populations.
