Current Activity
The goal of the Centre for Elder Research is to identify, develop, test and support the implementation of innovative strategies that improve the quality of life for older adults and their families, and to do this through applied research. Our approach to research builds on the personal strengths of older adults and seeks to empower them, their families and their communities. At any given time we are working on projects that represent a wide range of issues related to aging and older adults.
