Sheridan Centre for Elder Research
The Intervention Best Practices resource summarizes some of the best practices being used in programs and initiatives designed to address social isolation and/or loneliness. The various case studies included display innovative thinking and ideas from around the world. This resource can be used to inform program planning and implementation.
This resource is included in the Social Isolation and Loneliness Toolkit, created by the Centre for Elder Research in Oakville ON, Canada. The Toolkit is part of a research project titled “Building Connected Communities: improving Community Supports to Reduce Loneliness and Social Isolation in Immigrants 65+”. The research focused on exploring strategies to effectively reach out to, and support, older immigrants who may be experiencing, or are at risk of experiencing, social isolation and/or loneliness.
