Revisiting Pandemic Perspectives from Older Adults and Caregivers

Description: After the COVID-19 crisis hit, we brought together older adults and caregivers to hear their perspectives.

Webinar participants will:
- Learn about how technology is being used in the home during the pandemic
- Meet additional members of AGE-WELL’s Older Adult and Caregiver Advisory Committee (OACAC)
- Explore challenges and opportunities for AgeTech to respond to the needs of Canadians
