Linked Senior Awarded CABHI Support

Posted on September 26, 2017

$8.3 million awarded by CABHI to Healthcare Innovators


The Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation (CABHI), in collaboration with Baycrest Health Sciences, announced twenty-six new projects receiving more than $8.3 million in financial support from the CABHI to accelerate solutions that can help to improve the quality of life and care for older adults with dementia and cognitive health issues.

After an extensive evaluation process, CABHI announced today that Linked Senior’s research project, “Advancing Recreation and Cognitive Engagement,” in collaboration with Responsive Health Management, Inc and Western Oregon University, has been awarded financial support! Ultimately, thanks to CABHI and its funders, we hope this innovation will be developed to have a significant impact on the quality of life for older adults in Canada.

We acknowledge the generous funding provided by the Government of Ontario through the Ministry of Research, Innovation and Science, and by the Government of Canada through the Public Health Agency of Canada, and by the Baycrest Foundation, which enables CABHI to administer all of their funding programs. CEO and Co-Founder of Linked Senior, Charles de Vilmorin, shared “We would also like to thank Responsive Health Management for working with us on the application and for the upcoming research. We are excited about advancing the field of therapeutic engagement and championing quality of life for older adults.”
