The Centre for Innovation and Research in Aging: Research Driving Practice

We are working on seven projects – topics include: palliative care, medication management, social isolation, physical activity, passive monitoring technology and virtual reality.

The Centre for Innovation and Research in Aging (CIRA) began as an idea and quickly grew into an official startup research organization. Since its incorporation in the spring of 2018, CIRA has received several research funding grants and has fostered research collaborations with stakeholders, researchers, and academics from across Canada. To date, our research has spanned many topics that impact older adults including medication management, emotional well-being, physical health, safety, and cognitive ability. A diverse team of 12, CIRA is currently funded for seven Health Seniors Pilot Projects.
