The Faculty of Kinesiology & Recreation Director, Centre on Aging at the University of Manitoba  and IHCAM have partnered in a project funded by the federal government’s New Horizons for Seniors Program. 

The funding is intended to help find ways that older residents living in long-term care can be engaged virtually, given the very challenging situation that the pandemic creates. 

Michelle Porter, Professor at the University of Manitoba, Julie Turenne-Maynard of IHCAM are being supported by students who are compiling virtual entertainment and activities and creating a weekly newsletter and calendar for use by PCHs, and anyone else seeking entertainment.
