Communities for Ageing Populations in

Canada and Brazil

Findings from two studies are being presented at this seminar. Both use a community-based participatory research approach.

Professor Judith Sixsmith,Centre Lead for the Ageing Research Centre at the IoHW, the University of Northampton, will present the findings of a study undertaken in Vancouver ’Place-Making with Older Adults: transitioning into Affordable Housing’ on how a sense of place is experienced by older people relocating into an affordable housing development, how their lived experiences can inform the provision of effective formal and informal supports, and how older people and other stakeholders can be located as active ’place-makers’ in community planning and development.

Maria Mascolli, a visiting PhD student from Brazil, will present the initial findings of a qualitative research study that explores the perceptions and experiences of the elderly residing in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil, in relation to diverse weather conditions.

A sandwich lunch will be provided
