ACTing Collectively

Aging adults can live at home longer, healthier, and more independently when there are community supports and services in place to meet their needs. The ACTing Collectively project is a local and collaborative effort to improve well-being and safety for aging adults in Cape Breton. The project launched summer 2022 in Richmond County, Victoria County, and the Cape Breton Regional Municipality.

Adults 65 and older, living in these communities are invited to take part in this project by having a one-hour conversation about what they need to live well in their local communities. Individuals taking part in the interviews will receive a list of local resources they can contact to address their needs.

Information on identified needs and resources available to meet those needs will be summarized and shared with leaders and policymakers in the local communities. This will help local communities identify and plan the local resources and services needed to help adults in Cape Breton age well at home.
