The Centre for Studies in Aging and Health (CSAH) plays a leadership role in multiple research and knowledge exchange projects in partnerships with other research and innovation organizations in aging and health across Ontario. In the last five years, CSAH has generated over 1.5 million dollars in funding and has actively collaborated on other projects involving over two million dollars. Through early researcher funding CSAH has been able to support and promote new engagement of several upcoming researchers in aging and health.
CSAH is pleased to spotlight some of the emerging regional, provincial and national research and publications related to aging.
- Ontario Age-Friendly Communities (AFC) Outreach Program - 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.
- Kingston HomeShare - Canada HomeShare is a co-housing initiative that matches an older adult (55+) with a postsecondary student for a shared housing experience.
- The GrandPals Project - GrandPals is an intergenerational program that connects an elementary school class with a small team of GrandPals (adults over 55) to engage in weekly, open conversations providing a path for knowledge transfer through storytelling.
