The University of Waterloo needs your assistance in distributing a survey that examines the prevalence and associations of health and mobility in Canadians 45 and older. 

The study is funded by the University of Waterloo International Research and Partnership Grant to examine the effects of health on mobility among Canadians.  The aim is to determine how health as well as physical, cognitive and social factors influence injury rates including driving and fall related accidents. Findings from this project will lead to program and service development that address the needs of Canadians as they age. 

The Centre for Studies in Aging & Health at Providence Care invite to join us for an inperson and webinar presentation on Tues. Oct. 18th from 4-5pm by Sarah Webster, Knowledge Broker for the Ontario Age-Friendly Community Outreach Initiative and Dr. John Puxty, Associate Professor and Chair of the Division of Geriatric Medicine in the Department of Medicine at Queen's University. 

This 2016 website provides a toolkit for falls prevention month which includes information for older adults and caregivers, promotional materials, sample activities for falls prevention month (November), practitioner resources, ongoing programs and interventions, statistics and infographics and evaluation resources.

The Centre for Studies in Aging & Health at Providence Care (CSAH) and the Seniors Health Knowledge Network (SHKN) are pleased to announce our newest collaborative venture: our combined web sites.  As one of our valuable partners, SHKN, has joined us in many collaborative initiatives to provide resources and learning experiences for a vast array of topics, audiences and projects.  SHKN provides a rich knowledge exchange experience through their networking, newsletters and webinars, distributed through their online membership and Communities of Practice.

Highlighting the launch of our joint website is the announcement of the Age Friendly Communities Initiative (AFC), funded by the Ontario Seniors Secretariat.  This collective of engaged and active communities across Ontario are being mentored and supported. An Age-Friendly Community (AFC) is a community where policies, services and physical spaces are designed to enable people of all ages to live in a secure and accessible physical and social environment.  Find out more about how you can get involved in the AFC Initiative!
