business_of_aging_croppedDo you live in Halton? Are you interested in helping Halton become the best place to live, work and play for all older adults? The Healthy Aging Working Group would love to hear your feedback about the draft list of healthy aging outcomes that have been developed for older adults in Halton.

Sign up for an in person interview, or take the on-line survey here: Healthy Aging Halton

Click here www.halton.ca/healthyaging for the link to the Healthy Aging webpage on the Halton Region website. It gives details about the consultations, how to register, as well as a link to the on-line survey on the Sheridan Centre for Elder Research website.

The consultations will be taking place from mid May to June, 2016 and the on-line survey is available now, through to June 30, 2016.

The Healthy Aging Working Group is made up of members from Community Development Halton, Burlington Age-Friendly Seniors Council, Halton Multicultural Council, the Halton Region Health Department, Hillsview Active Living Centre — Georgetown, the Halton Chapter of CARP, the Towns of Oakville and Milton, and the Sheridan Centre for Elder Research.

As a follow-up to consultations with stakeholders in the fall of 2015, this group is now offering in-person consultations, and an on-line survey, as opportunities for Halton residents who are interested in healthy aging to provide feedback about outcomes this group has drafted. These outcomes could help build the foundation for a comprehensive strategy.

 

 

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

What's your take?
