Current projects

Research has shown that youth and older adults have much to gain through meaningful interactions as they complement each other’s knowledge, aptitudes, and levels of energy. However, the current social landscape is causing increasing disconnect between the generations.

Exercise has been shown to have significant physical, cognitive, and emotional benefits for older adults, however, changing abilities can make it difficult for people living with dementia to engage in exercise. Together with kinesiologists and people with early-stage dementia, we have co-created head-mounted virtual reality exercise games to encourage engagement in exercise.
