Centre for Elder Research: Last Call for Participants…….

The Centre for Elder Research is putting out a final call for participants for the research project entitled Testing a New Approach to Monitor Mild Cognitive Impairment and Mental Health in Older Adults at the Community Level in partnership with the Ontario Brain Institute, Winterlight Labs, and Soul Machines.

This is the final chance to participate in-person in a study that uses a Digital Human to administer a series of tasks to monitor changes in cognitive function and mental health in older adults over the course of one year. Compensation will be provided in the form of a digital gift card, with $50 CAD offered upon completion of session #3, as well as $50 CAD upon completion of session #5. Additionally, we offer free and accessible parking, and refreshments will be provided. To accommodate schedules, dates and times for in-person visits are flexible.

During recruitment for this study, we have heard that community members face challenges getting to campus (including cost, distance or schedules). Therefore, we are working with our partners to explore a remote or hybrid option for a second phase of this study. While we cannot guarantee this option will be available, we are honouring the feedback that has been shared, and are seeking to gauge interest in this option.
