Study Purpose:
Aging in Place in Rural and Remote Regions (APR3) is a study by researchers from TRU, UNBC, and UBC-O. The study aims to compare how three Seniors Health and Wellness Centres in Kamloops, Kelowna, and Salmon Arm are meeting their goals and addressing the needs and priorities of rural older adults, and helping them age in place (stay in their own homes). 

We want to hear from older adults 65 years or older who 1) live in a rural or remote community AND 2) have accessed a Seniors Health and Wellness Centre in either Kamloops, Kelowna, or Salmon Arm. We emphasize equity, diversity, and inclusion as guiding principles for the study – we are hoping to reach older adults from diverse backgrounds.

What’s Involved:
We are asking participants to join us for a structured interview over telephone or computer. This interview should take no longer than one hour and will be scheduled within the month of June 2021, at your convenience. We are happy to thank participants for their time and offer a $25 honorarium in the form of a gift card.

To sign up, visit: OR  call Robert Perryment, Research Assistant at 250-878-1279.

I have learned so much about innovation and capacity building by being part of PVN. I signed up to build my leadership skills, however, I experience benefits for myself, my community and Indigenous peoples throughout the province. I understand more about the complexities and opportunities required to improve health care.
