Our intake is done through The Way In (http://thewayincalgary.ca/), a collaboration of Calgary-based agencies who work to provide support and services for older adults and their families. Outreach workers provide support to older adults in various settings including in client homes, hospitals, long-term care facilities and in the community.
In addition to the whole spectrum of general older adults outreach assistance, there are several specific areas of service that target aging members of the Jewish Community, including recent newcomers and Holocaust survivors.
