Launch of the Project Entitled ‘To Improve Community Living in Private Retirement Residences – Part 2 (November 2019)

The second phase of the project ‘To Improve the Quality of Community Living in Private Retirement Residences’ was launched on November 7, 2019 with the arrival of Marie-Chantal Falardeau as project coordinator.

Funded by the Partnership Engage Grants Program of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the three-year project (2019-2022) aims to develop and implement a program promoting ‘living-well together’ and countering situations of resident-to-resident mistreatment in private retirement residences (PRR).

Building on the results of Part 1, the project has the following objectives:

  1. To document practices concerning the fight against resident-to-resident mistreatment and the promotion of ‘living well together’ in PRR
  2. To develop and implement a program to promote ‘living well together’ in PRR and counter resident-to-resident mistreatment (prevention, identification, intervention).
  3. To conduct a developmental assessment of the program as it is implemented in PRR.

The research team undertakes the recension of writings, recruitment tools, data collection, and the formation of various working groups.
