The Age-Friendly Sarnia-Lambton website was officially re-launched this week with expanded resources and a new design, aimed at connecting residents at any age and any stage, with the health services and community supports they need.

“We are thrilled to unveil this newly expanded website; we have been working diligently to improve this important resource for Sarnia-Lambton,” said Nadine Neve, health system integration lead, Sarnia-Lambton OHT.

“Age-Friendly Sarnia-Lambton is a centralized hub for residents of all ages to find what they need. Whether it be regarding local transport, mental health and addictions, active living or available 24/7 supports and resources – Age-Friendly Sarnia-Lambton has it all available at your fingertips.”

The new website was spearheaded by Lambton Public Health, Lambton Elderly Outreach, Family Counselling Centre, Sarnia-Lambton-OHT and partners.

“The newly refreshed Age-Friendly website will offer all residents a digital space to access so many great resources, and we knew how important it was to encompass services beyond healthcare,” says Julie Harries, Health Promoter, Lambton Public Health. “The website will play a key role in supporting our population’s health in a proactive manner. In taking a holistic approach to wellbeing, we can improve the overall health of our communities.”

In its new form, Age-Friendly Sarnia-Lambton has also moved towards utilizing Community Navigators through a partnership with the Family Counselling Centre. Anyone requiring assistance when accessing the website can call 519-336-3000 to find support in getting connected with local resources and services based on their needs. The new website also features a ‘my list’ function, allowing users to save any supports and services pages that align with their specific needs.
