Pan-Edmonton Group Addressing Social Isolation of Seniors (PEGASIS)

Connecting seniors to reduce isolation

PEGASIS is a collaborative of senior-serving agencies in Edmonton developing new ways of supporting seniors to reduce social isolation and creating a community where seniors feel more valued and respected, and where their safety and well-being is actively supported.

By addressing a range of factors that may lead to social isolation, including lack of transportation, poor language skills, and low income, PEGASIS will encourage and promote healthy connections and build networks among seniors, caregivers, and communities. Learn more about the PEGASIS projects.

Coordination of PEGASIS

The Edmonton Seniors Coordinating Council serves as a backbone for the PEGASIS collaborative by engaging community stakeholders and providing coordination and evaluation support to the initiative.
