This February, Sharon Smikle, an Alzheimer Society Behavioural Outreach Worker/Intensive Case Manager, sat down with The Good Shepherd Centre podcast, The Fold. They had an insightful conversation about addressing the needs of seniors within our Hamilton community. In particular, Sharon highlights the collaborative approach called Seniors at Risk in Hamilton (SaRiH).

Who can access SaRiH support?

  • Older adults in Hamilton ( age 55 +)
  • Older adults who are vulnerable and at risk of abuse, neglect and self-neglect, lonely and isolated without support, physical health challenges
  • Older adults living with cognitive impairment/dementia (with or without diagnosis); caregiver support
  • Older adults from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds who are underserved
  • Older adults who are facing evictions, home safety concerns related to hoarding issues
