The New Brunswick Collaborative for Healthy Aging and Care
NB COLLABORATIVE STORYWe Are All Neighbours in AgingThe New Brunswick Collaborative for Healthy Aging and Care, a growing coalition representing 33+ stakeholder organizations whose programs support New Brunswick's senior population, focuses its efforts in collaborating with organizations and individual citizens interested in healthy aging and care. Specifically, the Collaborative meets to determine the ways in which NB stakeholders can work together to shape aging in our communities by developing unique partnerships to build system capacity, impact culture and affect needed policy change.
A number of stakeholders who have an interest or whose programs support New Brunswick’s seniors have come together and to create a new conversation on healthy aging in our province.
The group recognizes that:
“It’s time to change the conversation. If we see seniors as a burden, we only see part of the solution. It’s about the creative energy that new people and fresh thinking can bring when we see everyone, including seniors, as contributing to the way forward.”
