“Aging is a social force worldwide, and the rising age of our population profoundly impacts individuals, families, communities, and health and social care systems. While the growing population of older adults in Canada should be celebrated as a success, there are also challenges in developing policies and solutions that consider the older adults and citizens who will be most impacted.”
McMaster’s Institute for Research on Aging aims to involve older adults, their families, healthcare providers and the community in research, activities and technologies that will allow older adults to age in place.
