Featured HEIA in action

Nucleus Independent Living, which helps adults live at home independently in Toronto, Mississauga and Halton, conducted a HEIA on its Supports for Daily Living (SDL) Program. This program assists seniors who want, and are able, to continue living in their own homes. It provides 24-hour practical assistance with essential activities that a senior cannot perform because of physical limitations or health conditions.

Nucleus conducted the HEIA on their SDL program because it is their largest program and the seniors it serves are at high risk. It saw the HEIA as a good way to dig deeper and explore potential equity barriers in the program and, if they were found, come up with methods to address them.
