The Sheridan Elder Research Centre (SERC) has been awarded $2.3 million over five years through the College and Community Innovation (CCI) program, an initiative of the federal government. The awards winning project is titled “Aging in Place: Optimizing Health Outcomes through Technology, Design and Social Innovation” and will focus on enhancing quality of life of older Canadians and their families. Recreational Respite is one of ten partners to take part in this initiaitve and we are very excited about moving forward. Recreational Respite’s goal with this allocation in this project is to design optimal community engagement solutions for those with early onset Alzheimer’s disease (45 years +) and those individuals with developmental disabilities so they may continue to age in place through therapeutic community based programs of interest, thus the birth of RecreACTIVE.
