It is estimated that 10 000 older adults are isolated and at-risk in Ottawa. Are you worried about an older adult you know? Most times, people who are isolated will not look for help on their own, and you may be the first person to notice changes for the worse. You can help them stay safe and continue living independently by connecting them with timely support and services available in the community. The Community Connect program can help link isolated, at-risk older adults to local supports and services before a crisis takes place. To learn more about how to help an older adult in need, call Ottawa Public Health at 613-580-6744 (TTY: 613-580-9656) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
