Snapshots of aging

Snapshots of aging includes accessible FACT sheets, infographics and videos intended for older adults, caregivers along with community and government organizations that serve and support them. Our article Using technology to support caregivers of older people with dementia was recently published in The Conversation, academic rigour with journalistic flair.
We recently wrote a blog to recognize carers in Canada and understand their barriers to technology adoption for Advancing Policies and Practices in Technology and Aging (APPTA), AGE-WELL’s national policy innovation hub in Fredericton. And Andrew Magnaye, one of our doctoral students, reflected on the APPTA Policy Challenge in his blog post Uncovering the Black Box Between Research and Policy.

Videos are other ways of making our research accessible to a wider audience. Here are some of our recent knowledge mobilization creations:

FACT Sheets

FACT sheets are 4-page research briefs that are topical and intended for a policy and practice audience. Many of these briefs synthesize and integrate research findings across projects.
