AGE-WELL Public Webinar Series: Creating Smart Homes: Innovative Solutions to Support Aging in Place

March 27, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT


Most older Canadians would like to age in the homes and communities that they know. Technology-based solutions can help older adults live independently and improve quality of life, while supporting caregivers and providing a cost-effective alternative to long-term care.

Webinar participants will learn about:


  • The potential for technology to change our homes and support aging in place
  • Cutting-edge research underway at an Ottawa “apartment lab”
  • Smart-home solutions in the pipeline – or already on the market
