The West End Seniors’ Network is proud to present Stories of Success: Older Adults Overcoming Adversity. This is a video series of older adults who have come forward and told stories of overcoming great odds in their lives. Whether it is mental illness, abuse, housing, or ageing, these seniors all have a story to tell. Despite the adversity that our participants have faced, they have all come through stronger and learned a great deal from their experiences.
We’d like to thank all of our participants for coming forward and sharing their inspiring experiences with us. We know that it’s not always easy to share deeply personal stories. However, we hope that through sharing your story, it inspires others to come forward with their own, or realize that the hardships they face in life can be overcome with some help and guidance.
We’d also like to thank the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program, and the First Baptist Foundation for their funding support. We’d also like to thank Spencer Isaac with Stillwater Creations for his invaluable contribution to this project. Without this support, these stories would not be heard and shared with everyone.
