SPRINT Senior Care client’s story featured in UHN OpenLab’s The Local
The Local is a storytelling platform that brings a human dimension to population health data in the Toronto Central LHIN. It tells hyperlocal stories about population health issues and grassroots innovations happening within the Toronto neighbourhoods that make up the LHIN’s five sub-regions.
The majority of neighbourhoods in North Toronto have a higher population of seniors living alone, compared to the rest of the Toronto Central LHIN. In fact, in Mount Pleasant West, 58% of seniors live alone.
Home Alone: A Portrait Series, takes you into the lives of seniors, including 103 year-old SPRINT Senior Care client Mr. Kwok and 92 year-old SPRINT Senior Care client Ms. Palmer, who both live in one of the four Toronto Community Housing buildings from which SPRINT Senior Care provides services to around 160 seniors. Listen to their stories below.
