Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging

We know an aging population presents a number of challenges, but we see the opportunity to innovate. To improve care practices, health care services, training and education for the senior living sector, and ultimately change the way we age in Canada.

The RIA supports research that explores aging across various theme areas, such as:
  • Brain Health
  • Heart Health
  • Nutrition
  • Training and Education

We use the research findings to create and improve programs, policies, education and training. Then we share what works.

The result is better care and enhanced quality of life for older adults.
