Are we getting it right?
Making sure the work United Way’s Healthy Aging Team does is inclusive and relevant means being accountable to the community-based seniors’ services (CBSS) sector.
To help us, we work with a number of groups to ensure we’re headed in the right direction including the CBSS Leadership, the Healthy Aging Provincial Reference Group, the Municipal Caucus, and the BC Seniors Funding Table.
Participation is key
Members of the CBSS meet and connect regularly to uncover how we can work better together. In 2017, the inaugural Provincial Summit on Aging invited delegates to participate in moving the Healthy Aging by United Way plan forward. In 2019, the Summit will be held at the Executive Hotel in Richmond, BC November 6, 7 and 8 and will further expand the important work of communities supporting local seniors.
Regional forums and provincial working groups are among the ongoing activities that ensure we’re on the right track.

Online and accessible
Healthy Aging’s Collaborative Online Resources and Education platform, or CORE, is an online network for leaders in seniors’ services to access resources, training and tools to strengthen and sustain the vital programs they deliver every day.
CORE helps seniors get the best community support possible to live well through collaboration, consistency and cooperation in the sector. It will also help match volunteers through programs like United Way-managed Better at Home with volunteer opportunities in their community.
