Strangers at your door

Knocking on doors from Leaside to Crescent Town and throughout Old East York, WoodGreen community researchers are interviewing in seniors about aging in East York. At one time, East York was the municipality with the second highest portion of older adults (65+), after only Victoria, British Columbia.

So you may still see our researchers in your neighbourhood. Carefully screened and trained, the researchers also carry WoodGreen ID.

The project, Our Home, East York, is one of the positive results from the merger between Community Care East York and WoodGreen. Toronto East General Hospital, Station 54, and the University of Toronto are all participating in this effort to obtain a deeper understanding of older adults in Toronto neighbourhoods, what community connections exist and what supports are needed, including housing.

The Our Home, East York project team has already completed a global review of academic and grey literature before developing the survey. This is now posted on the WoodGreen site. Further results will be posted as they become available.

Diane Dyson is WoodGreen's Director of Research and Public Policy.
