Focus Groups Underway for Older Adult Expansion
HIGH FIVE has received funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation to develop a Quality Assurance Framework for Older Adult recreation. This 3-year project will build on the current HIGH FIVE national industry standard for children, using best practices and systems already in place to customize a standard for the rapidly advancing demographic; older adults.
The first phase of this project is research and development including Focus Group meetings with people who lead or are responsible for older adult programming. The purpose of these Focus Groups is to obtain feedback and consensus from key stakeholders to help inform the creation of a Quality Assurance Framework for Older Adult recreation.
If you lead or are responsible for Older Adult recreation programs, you are invited to attend a Focus Group Meeting being held across the country in the fall of 2016.
