Windsor , Ontario
Our program includes a Coalition of more than 300 champions and 100+ agencies and associations from education, health care, social services, municipal, cultural, faith, business, non-profit, volunteer and informal sectors. We cross all levels of government, with federal; provincial, regional, county, and municipal involvement and support. We represent the full human service continuum - including hospice, dementia, hospital, home and community care, long-term care homes, and physicians - as well as social services and education partners.
Working together with local agencies, businesses, and individuals, we help citizens build their circle of care around them to help support them as they age. By providing people with coaches to help organize their circle of care, we look at ways to improve their lives with community support, help from neighbours, family members and local support services. In addition to this we offer an application to support neighbourhood exchanges of time for talents and services. These efforts are recorded and data is collected to gage our progress in becoming one of the most compassionate communities in Canada. Ultimately we are connecting people with the help they need and want in order for them to live life well. In the process we are creating one of the most compassionate communities in Canada. It's a place where people want to live.
