AGE-WELL NCE Inc., the Aging Gracefully across Environments to Ensure Well-Being, Engagement and Long life network, a national research and innovation network hosted at Toronto Rehab, has announced its Core Research Program.

Twenty-five teams of researchers from across Canada have been funded to conduct cutting-edge research that will directly benefit older adults and caregivers–and the Canadian economy.​

​​

Two of these projects are co-led by Toronto Rehab scientists. Dr. Frank Rudzicz is working on CARE-RATE: An Online Assistive Technology Rating System for Caregivers. Dr. Babak Taati is co-leading the project PAIN-ASSESS: Development, Implementation and Evaluation of an Automated Pain Detection System for Older Adults with Dementia.

AGE-WELL is led by joint scientific directors Dr. Alex Mihailidis, Senior Scientist, Toronto Rehab; and Dr. Andrew Sixsmith, Director of the Gerontology Research Centre, Simon Fraser University.
