In Québec, on October 1, support the International Day of Older Persons (October 2021)
During the International Day of Older Persons, which is held every year on October 1, many activities are organised throughout the world to promote and enhance the role of older adults in contemporary society.
Québec is no stranger to this effort. In each of its regions, through its community organisations offering services to older adult populations or via the steps undertaken by MADA municipalities (towns and cities designated as “Friendly to Older Adults”), a variety of programming is delivered.
On this day, the Research Chair underlines the importance of improving the living conditions of older adults, which takes place when, among other things, steps to counter mistreatment in synergy with the development of a culture of wellness care are adopted on a large scale.
