Living in small urban centres and rural communities has its benefits and challenges for older adults. This Café Scientifique will address a few of the common challenges faced by older adults such as accessing health services for older couples, social isolation, and the experience of caregivers of people in late stages of dementia in different settings. We will discuss these challenges and how we can support older adults by making changes to public education, health care provision, programming, and policy development.

Come join the discussion!
