Hamilton Council on Aging partnered with GERAS experts from Hamilton Health Sciences and McMaster University to develop this evidence-informed series that provides aging adults, seniors, families, and caregivers with quality information on aging and age-related topics that is functional, immediately practical, and easy to understand. This series has built goal-setting into each session to support participants in making the changes necessary to enhance positive aging.

Education Workshops To Support Positive Aging And Well-Being

With support from the United Way of Halton and Hamilton, Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program and our own fundraising activities, HCoA is proud to announce our Educational Workshops to Support Positive Aging and Well-being.

All workshops are interactive, planned and facilitated by older adults who are volunteers of the Hamilton Council on Aging (HCoA).  They run approximately 60-90 minutes in length. They are offered in-person or virtually.  The workshop series advance the Canadian National Priorities of:

  1. Supporting health aging
  2. Celebrating diversity and promoting inclusion
  3. Helping seniors to age in place
  4. Preventing senior abuse

Further, they address several of the goals and recommendations released in Hamilton’s Plan for an Age-Friendly Community (2021-2026).   (Source: Government of Canada: Action for Seniors Report, 2014).
