This video triptych delves into the experiences of older adults, community sector workers and policy makers who provided and received community support and care during the COVID-19 pandemic. Their stories of living through the pandemic paint a picture of resilience amid hardship, harnessing opportunities, adapting to rapid technological change, and facing unprecedented—and sometimes unexpected—needs in the community.

Through a blend of candid interviews and evocative imagery, the video series captures the realities of navigating a landscape in flux during a time of crisis. This series is developed as part of a broader research project titled “Non-profit organization and COVID-19: Understanding, mapping, and enhancing community care for older adults in Montreal in a post-pandemic world”.

Facilitated by Kim Sawchuk, Sam Thulin, Isabela Cossio Bedoya, and Christina Haralanova (Concordia University).
