Targeting Isolation in Manitoba

The Targeting Isolation initiative, led by researchers at the University of Manitoba and Brandon University, is part of the Aging Well Together Coalition. The Coalition is funded by the Federal Government of Canada's New Horizons for Seniors Program. 

 

Targeting Isolation aims to:

  • Help people identify and better understand social isolation

  • Training Community Connectors to connect socially isolated older individuals to community resources

  • Working with organizations that help reduce older people’s social isolation
