Supportive Community: An Evaluation Study, 2010

The Supportive Community Program is an additional component of the system of community services that enables the elderly to remain in their homes (to age in place) and maintain their quality of life. The program's services respond to needs that are not met - or not adequately met - by other services in the community. The underlying premise of the program was that there was a need to focus on a set of services that contributed to the feeling of security of the elderly. The main services are an emergency call service, physician home visits, and social activities.
