Three new CABHI-funded projects address COVID-19 concerns

August 9, 2021

Congratulations to our researchers Kate Dupuis, Heather Keller and Linda Lee on their newly funded projects through the Centre for Aging + Brain Health Innovation (CABHI) Spark-ON Program!

Their projects were selected along with 21 other COVID-19-centric innovations aimed at improving the lives of older adults, persons with dementia and their care partners.

Dupuis’ project will use the evidence-based power of music therapy to address care partner well-being and social connectedness among residents. 

Keller will bring Wet your Whistle with Water (W3), an intervention to promote water intake in older adults, to 19 Schlegel Villages.

Lee’s project will use the new virtual version of the Centre for Family Medicine’s Advance Care Preferences for Persons Living with Dementia tool to help healthcare professionals conduct virtual care planning discussions with people living with dementia and their care partners.

We look forward to seeing these innovations enhance life for older adults. Read more about the projects.
