No Intervention: Control
Will complete a survey at baseline and at 1 year, no program or intervention provided
- Change in Canadian Diabetes Risk (CANRISK) Score [ Time Frame: Baseline and 1 year ]The CANRISK tool provides a 10-year risk of diabetes score and will be administered by the paramedic during the CHAP-EMS session.
- Change in Blood Pressure [ Time Frame: Baseline and after each assessment (up to one year) ]Since the participants are invited to attend the intervention weekly, but are not required to attend, the number of assessments and time of assessments will vary. Multilevel analysis will be conducted that accounts for this variance in repeated measures.
- Change in health perceptions, behaviours, and knowledge of resources [ Time Frame: Baseline and 1 year ]A face-to-face survey will be administered to determine participant health perceptions, behaviours, and knowledge.
- Change in Health Care Utilization [ Time Frame: Baseline and 1 year ]Health Care Utilization will be assessed through administrative databases (e.g. hospital visits). Utilization by residents in the intervention apartment buildings will be compared to baseline and compared to the control apartment buildings.
- Change in rate of EMS Calls [ Time Frame: Baseline and 1 year ]Rate EMS calls by residents in the intervention apartment buildings will be compared to baseline and compared to the control apartment buildings.
