business_of_aging_croppedDo you live in Halton? Are you interested in helping Halton become the best place to live, work and play for all older adults? The Healthy Aging Working Group would love to hear your feedback about the draft list of healthy aging outcomes that have been developed for older adults in Halton.

Sign up for an in person interview, or take the on-line survey here: Healthy Aging Halton

Click here www.halton.ca/healthyaging for the link to the Healthy Aging webpage on the Halton Region website. It gives details about the consultations, how to register, as well as a link to the on-line survey on the Sheridan Centre for Elder Research website.

The consultations will be taking place from mid May to June, 2016 and the on-line survey is available now, through to June 30, 2016.

The Healthy Aging Working Group is made up of members from Community Development Halton, Burlington Age-Friendly Seniors Council, Halton Multicultural Council, the Halton Region Health Department, Hillsview Active Living Centre — Georgetown, the Halton Chapter of CARP, the Towns of Oakville and Milton, and the Sheridan Centre for Elder Research.

As a follow-up to consultations with stakeholders in the fall of 2015, this group is now offering in-person consultations, and an on-line survey, as opportunities for Halton residents who are interested in healthy aging to provide feedback about outcomes this group has drafted. These outcomes could help build the foundation for a comprehensive strategy.

A Better Burlington began in 2006 after my neighbours said they felt left out of city decisions, learning about them only after they’d been made.

As journalist for 22 years, I thought “I can do something about that” and a website and newsletter were born. They’ve taken various forms and names over the years, but the intent remains: To let you know what’s happening at City Hall before decisions are made, so you can influence outcomes for A Better Burlington.

The best decisions are made when elected representatives tap the wisdom of our community members, and welcome many different perspectives.This site allows residents to comment and debate with each other; our Commenting Guidelines established in 2016 aim to keep debate respectful.
