Partner Update: Silver Harbour Senior’s Activity Centre

Silver Harbour Seniors’ Activity Centre is located in North Vancouver and is a gathering place for local older adults.  The Centre offers more than 60 different seniors programs and services, including activities supporting physical health and wellbeing, nutrition, cognitive and mental health, lifelong learning, artistic creativity, and much more; we are also a community partner in the MAP Partnership. 

Our participation in MAP has focused on the very practical work of recruiting older adults to various MAP projects, such as neighbourhood walkability audits with a mobility, hearing and/or dementia focus.  More broadly, however, our participation in this partnership has helped ensure the effectiveness, applicability, and usefulness of academic research in the community, which in turn facilitates the improved quality of life, participation, and inclusion of seniors with disabilities and mobility limitations in the community.
