Promising Interventions for Aboriginal Seniors

For Aboriginal seniors, activities that incorporate traditional activities and foods, including going out on the land, may be an effective way of addressing isolation and improving health outcomes. Some organizations that provide services to Aboriginal seniors, including Saanich First Nations Adult Care Society and Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation, connect seniors with youth, emphasizing the important role of First Nations Elders and storytelling (Health Council of Canada, 2013).
