Abstract: Rural older adults have become increasingly active in forming groups, or coalitions, within their communities to address their unmet health service needs due to scarce resources and supports. Some groups are more effective than others in meeting their needs, and this project seeks to understand what makes the difference.
Note: The Age Friendly Community Initiative Advisory Committee participated in this study and the West Kootenays is included in the outcomes.
