The Geriatric Education and Research in Aging Sciences (GERAS) Centre has received a grant of $300 from the Retired Women Teacher’s of Ontario – Hamilton Wentworth Division to go towards research in optimal aging.
The funding will be used to support Dr. Hazzan and his research on the caregiver burden aspect of the TAPESTRY study. TAPESTRY is a novel health and social care approach that centres on meeting a person’s health goals with the support of technology, trained community volunteers, an interprofessional team, system navigation, and better links between primary care and community organizations. Dr. Hazzan is leading the effort to examine the impact of the TAPESTRY approach on the burden of caring for someone with a chronic disease.
The GERAS Centre would like to thank the RWTO – Hamilton Wentworth Division and the Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation for this generous funding.
