2022 – present (as of 2023)
In 2022, Québec had more than 130 935 private seniors’ residences (PSRs) occupied by 753 893 people aged 75 or older. In 2029, this number will exceed 1 million. More than a third of seniors in PSRs live in relative or total isolation, which has a negative impact on their cognitive, physical and mental health.
Therefore, this project aims to develop multisensory stimulation cultural activities specific to the elderly or people with reduced mobility. It also aspires to facilitate the use and implementation of these activities. The results of the research and the resulting applications, including an interactive smart whiteboard, will be made available free of charge on the web and made accessible to Québec, Canadian and international organizations.
