Impact of New Horizons Projects from Seniors’ Perspectives

The Edmonton Pegasis project produced several videos about seniors with lived experience becoming more connected to their communities as a result of PEGASIS. Written articles were also produced to accompany each senior story. Full article text for the stories is available on the Connecting Edmonton Seniors blog.

They also produced a highlight video featuring clips from seniors’ stories. The highlight video was developed with social media and the Connecting Edmonton Seniors website in mind. It is intended to provide a high-level “snapshot” of the differences community interventions can make.
