NEW: How to Make your Rental Unit Age Friendly!

As our population ages, many residents living in apartments may require additional support for their health and safety. The Age Friendly Hamilton Home Adaptations Task Force has been working to develop a series of brochures to help residents and property owners learn about how to install adaptations at little or no cost to the tenant!  Please check out our NEW information brochures to learn more!

These Age Friendly Hamilton brochures were developed in partnership by the City of Hamilton Public Health, City of Hamilton Seniors Advisory Committee, McMaster University, Rehabilitation Sciences, St. Joseph’s Home Care, Hamilton Council on Aging & Certified Rental Building Program. Special Thanks to Task Force Members: Linda Strobl, Jeanne Mayo, Lori Letts & Shamiso Matinyarare for producing these publications.

HCoA: 10 Years & Growing Stronger

Thank you to Eleanor Morton and her supporters who launched our 10 Years Stronger Campaign by running a ½ marathon to support our new Let’s Get Moving Program! 

Let’s Get Moving is designed to educate older adults on the mutual benefit of various forms of active transportation as a means of getting around and staying active, engaged, and healthy as we age!  Partially funded by the Ontario Sport and Recreation Communities Fund, Let’s Get Moving will consist of 30 workshops for older adults in Hamilton, between October 2017 and March 2019. HCoA has set a goal to raise approximately $10,000 for the Let’s Get Moving Project before March 31, 2018.

HCOA THANKS ELEANOR MORTON FOR HER SUPPORT & ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY,   HELPING US  TO WORK TOWARDS OUR VISION OF AN AGE FRIENDLY HAMILTON!
