Your Social Connectedness
Staying connected to friends, family and community provides many benefits as you age.
Social connections with community members of all ages can support physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being.
There are many ways to stay connected. These include having coffee with friends, joining support groups, taking part in recreational activities at your local seniors’ centre, taking general interest courses, working part-time or volunteering with a community program.
