Welcome to ElderConnect!
Whether you are an individual looking to connect with resources, services or education to help you age in place; a family member or caregiver looking to help someone else; or a seniors’ services provider, ElderConnect provides the tools, resources and people to promote and improve quality of life for seniors and those who care for them, while navigating the journey of aging.
ElderConnect is a joint project of the Eldercare Foundation and BC Healthy Communities.
What is ElderConnect?
ElderConnect™ is your community’s direct access to resources, tools, education and social connections to make navigating the journey of aging easier.
The Eldercare Foundation, in partnership with BC Healthy Communities, has developed a unified, connected, community-based wellness navigation system called ElderConnect™. By combining online and face-to-face community supports, ElderConnect™ makes it easier to find and access reliable resources in your own, or any other ElderConnected™ community.
ElderConnect’s™ driving theme is to inspire positive aging and community engagement. It is aligned with Eldercare Foundation’s Embrace Aging four pillars of healthy aging: Be Well, Be Secure, Be Connected and Be Enriched.
What People Say about ElderConnect
We are proud to be a part of the Sooke Region ElderConnect pilot team. As president of the SSDIC, I am aware of the difficulty for seniors living in isolated areas and can appreciate what ElderConnect can do to help alleviate that. Sooke Region ElderConnect makes it easier to promote events and activities to seniors and their families, presents more opportunities to be involved, and gives a heightened sense of community.
I regularly field calls from families looking for services for their senior members; ElderConnect is a wonderful plan to have information on services readily available.
