OASIS Program to Expand with $1M in Provincial Funding
A program designed to support aging well at home, co-led by Dr. Catherine Donnelly, occupational therapist at Queen’s Family Health Team’s Belleville site, has received more than $1M in provincial funding to expand.
The OASIS Senior Support Living Program brings seniors together and empowers them to make decisions and social connections that help them thrive at home. Created in 2009 in a Kingston seniors’ apartment building, the program will launch three new locations in Kingston and one in Belleville. In collaboration with university partners at McMaster and Western, two OASIS locations will also open in London and one in Hamilton.
