Aging At Home Strategy
In August 2007, the government announced the Aging at Home Strategy with an aim to provide supports to seniors and their caregivers to live healthy, independent lives in their own homes and communities. The three-year initiative will be led by the Local Health Integration Networks, with each LHIN receiving a specific funding allocation to meet the needs of local communities.
The North West LHIN will receive $3,399,768 in new base funding over the three-year funding period 2008 to 2011.
We have been engaging our community stakeholders to determine how these funds can best be leveraged in conjunction with other integration and systems-planning initiatives to address this priority.
This initiative presents an opportunity for the North West LHIN to advance the Integrated Health Services Plan with regards to the seniors priority and create opportunities for seniors that support their lifestyle choices and reflect how our seniors truly want to live.
