Aging in Place: Multidisciplinary perspectives on growing older at home

March 2, 2022 at 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Aging brings many physical, psychological and social changes that result in dynamic and complex changes.

To age in place is the ability to live with adaptability and resilience to maintain functional independence. Considering Canada’s aging population, efforts to support older women and men to age in place is even more pressing today.

Join this Café Scientifique to listen to multidisciplinary perspectives about growing older at home, express your viewpoints, and ask questions to aging experts.
