Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities (NORCS) and next-gen tech

Open Lab, University Health Network (UHN)

We partnered with OpenLab at the University Health Network for this research project. Our goal? Studying the forces of change that influence the spread for NORCs in Canada. We also conducted a survey of next-generation technologies that will help Canadians age in place in the near future. Contrary to popular belief, seniors are increasingly comfortable using technology and expect to engage with it to access care. See the three areas where technology is critical to progress in this field, and consider how we’ll get there.
