The City of Côte Saint-Luc wants to improve the lives of frail and isolated seniors through the use of smart technology and better access to community resources.

The City—along with researchers from Université de Sherbrooke, Université de Montréal and the CIUSSS West-Central Montreal—is looking for partner organizations  among those who already provide services for frail and isolated seniors within the city’s territory.

The goal is of the Côte Saint-Luc Living Lab Project is to co-develop a support model around smart environments for older adults. This includes new technologies in the home as well as better access to available resources within the Côte Saint-Luc community, such as municipal services, health and social services, community organizations, and support provided by families and community volunteers.

This research project is backed by a grant from the Fonds de recherche du Quebec for nearly $1 million.

Organizations that provide services to frail and isolated seniors and that wish to participate in this research project should contact Tanya Abramovitch at 514-485-6936 or [email protected].
