“The Age Well at Home (AWAH) is a federal funding initiative. After a lifetime of hard work, seniors want to live healthy, safe, and independent lives. Seniors want to stay at home, in the communities that support them, for as long as possible. They also want to increase their sense of belonging and connection to their communities, but this can become difficult as they age. This leads many vulnerable seniors to move to supportive care (such as a senior’s home) sooner than they would have needed to if they had adequate support at home. Low-income and otherwise vulnerable seniors may be particularly at risk.” (Source: GOC)
The Age Well at Home Initiative includes two funding streams: In-Home Support Pilot Project and Scaling Up for Seniors.
