When I was young I was amazed at Plutarch's statement that the elder Cato began at the age of eighty to


learn Greek. I am amazed no longer. Old age is ready to undertake tasks that youth shirked because they would take too long.


–W. Somerset Maugham If you associate enough with older


people who do enjoy their lives, who are not stored away in any golden ghettos, you will gain a sense of continuity and of the possibility for a full life.


– Margaret Mead In the central place of every heart


there is a recording chamber. So long as it receives a message of beauty, hope, cheer, and courage - so long are


you young. When the wires are all down and our heart is covered with the snow of pessimism and the ice of cynicism,


then, and only then, are you grown old. – Douglas MacArthur


Agencies plan to address gaps in services for seniors


Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council (ESCC) officially launched its Vision for an Age-Friendly Edmonton Action Plan in Spring 2011. The foundation upon which the document is based is the World Health Organization’s Global Age-Friendly Cities Guide. Edmonton joined the WHO Global Network of Age- Friendly Cities in late 2010.


To develop its Vision for an Age-Friendly Edmonton Action Plan, the ESCC asked seniors, their caregivers, key stakeholders and representatives from senior-serving organizations how to shape the commu- nity to become more responsive to the needs of an aging population. The vision is based on the perception that Edmon- ton, as a community, values, respects and actively supports the wellbeing of seniors. The document acknowledges the economic, social and cultural diver- sity of Edmonton’s current and future seniors. And it is rooted in the principle that seniors will take an active role in the implementation of actions required to address the goals identified in the plan.


The action plan is intended to guide the direction of services for seniors for the next five years. The document seeks to build on strengths and address gaps in processes and programs, with the intent of improving the quality of life for Ed- monton’s seniors.


If you would like to read the plan or download a copy, go to www.seniorscouncil.net. If you would like a hard copy mailed to you, contact the ESCC by calling 780.423.5635 or emailing sheila@seniorscouncil.net. Hard copies are $3 ech.
