Tune in as we discuss how we are promoting healthy aging and keeping older adults connected and cared for within their communities.

What do the Texas Hold ‘Em Challenge and prescriptions for exercise have in common? They’re two non-medical examples of how we’re helping seniors avoid frailty and age healthily and independently in their homes.

Host Dr. Victoria Lee is joined by Dr. Grace Park and Paramjit Rai to explore home-support programs within Fraser Health that are improving the health and well-being of older adults and providing respite for family caregivers. From culturally appropriate day programs to person-centred caregiver support services, this episode highlights many ways that we are keeping seniors as healthy and as long as possible at home and in their community communities.
