Health Checks consists of community organizations, researchers, health professionals, governments and individuals who work to plan, develop, deliver and evaluate an event or platform to showcase health and wellness information, assessments, services, and activities in Brandon and surrounding area.
The purpose of Health Checks is to facilitate Aging in Place by providing an event or platform to showcase health and wellness information, services, and activities. Aging in Place is defined as:
“Having access to services and the health and social supports you need to live safely and independently in your home or your community for as long as you wish or are able.”
The focus of this community effort is to promote the well-being of older adults and strengthen their right to self-determination, respect, and dignity. Through a coordinated effort that reaffirms the rights of older adults, everyone involved will contribute to a society that is more caring, compassionate and affirming, one in which everyone can age to their full potential.
