Exploring aging and engaging in communities

ABOUT ENGAGE RESEARCH LAB

Engagement


Our research explores social connectedness, community participation, and engagement in everyday activities among older adults.

Community


We aim to understand the ways that the social, physical, cultural and other aspects of communities shape older adults’ lives and to develop innovative strategies to promote age-inclusive communities.

Collaboration


We do research in settings like local neighbourhoods, apartment buildings, and primary care, and collaborate with community organizations and community members. See Projects for information about our work.
