The Seniors Program: A Case Study
In 2013, a British Columbia (BC) health authority entered into a collaboration with a second health authority in Nova Scotia (NS) and a non-profit foundation (herein named the Foundation). This collaboration aimed to develop an intervention to delay the onset of frailty in healthy but at-risk older adults. This intervention became known as the Seniors Program.
