Point Edward, ON – Lambton Public Health (LPH) is announcing the launch of an Older Adult Care Pathway survey, directed to adults aged 55+ and their caregivers.
The survey was developed as part of the Inclusive Communities Grant Fund that LPH was awarded from the Ministry of Seniors and Accessibility in March 2021. The work from this grant will inform the Older Adult Care Pathway Project, which builds on the elements initiated by the Age-Friendly Sarnia 2017 action plan. The goal is to expand age-friendly community planning to all of Lambton County.
The purpose of this research study is to conduct a needs assessment to evaluate the accessibility and effectiveness of Lambton County’s community support and health services. The study will engage with older adults, caregivers, and service providers to identify opportunities to improve the overall process of accessing and coordinating community services.
Information gathered from this research will help to provide better service referrals, and care coordination for adults and their loved ones. The results will also help to inform the development of a structured care pathway process that provides individuals with more effective and efficient services.
