Vertical Aging The Future of Aging in Place in Urban Canada
Two years ago, AMS Healthcare partnered with UHN OpenLab to explore the trend of Canadian seniors increasingly moving to vertical living – urban apartments, condos and co-ops – in order to remain living independently. The project saw AMS-funding support OpenLab efforts to develop products and technology-enabled solutions to support seniors while aging in these vertical communities. That funding has resulted in the 3 high-potential concept models that could shape the future of aging in place presented in the just-released “Vertical Aging” reports.
On February 3rd, OpenLab and AMS hosted a highly-attended webinar to launch Vertical Aging: The Future of Aging in Place in Urban Canada and the release of the three reports. The event included an introduction by Will Falk, board member of AMS Healthcare, and an outstanding presentation by Jen Recknagel, Vertical Aging’s main author. It was followed by a robust audience Q&A. We are sure you will find the content exciting and hopeful in an otherwise grim time for seniors’ housing.
