The Future is Now: Innovative living environments for older adults with cognitive impairment

The Centre of Excellence in Frailty-Informed Care is launching the first in a series of free webinars and you are invited to attend!

Many well-known projects such as Alzheimer’s villages and Greenhouse projects have been designed to stimulate culture change in homes for older adults with cognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. While the need to create the best living environments for this population has been known for years, COVID-19 has made this clearer than ever. The presentation will highlight the underlying principles of the most innovative special housing units and the research data that support them. Concrete  examples will be presented, including a new residence recently created in Quebec City.

The webinar will be moderated by Dr. Annie Robitaille, Research Chair, Centre of Excellence in Frailty-Informed Care, and Assistant Professor, University of Ottawa, with opening remarks from Dr. Linda Garcia, Director LIFE Research Institute and Full Professor, University of Ottawa.
