One Stop Community Support Services for Aging at Home - Guichet unique de services de soutien communautaire pour vieillir chez soi

Lead organization: Université de Moncton

Principle investigator(s): Catherine Bigonnesse

About the project:

The issue

The aim of this project is to help seniors wishing to continue living in their homes.

The importance

Most seniors want to continue living in their homes and community even if their health changes. Unfortunately, the services they need to do so are not always available in their region or are not suited to their needs. This is particularly true for Francophone seniors living in rural regions. 

What makes this project different

This project seeks to create a single window, i.e., an organization that puts seniors in touch with services available in their region and develops new services to meet their needs. Our project is different since we are testing a new single window model that has never been established in North America. 

Anticipated impacts

Our project will enable seniors to remain in their homes longer, improve their quality of life and remain active in their community.
