Oasis has partnered with researchers at Queen’s University to expand and evaluate Oasis in four cities in Ontario.
This work has been funded by the Baycrest Centre for Aging and Brain Health Innovation, the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, and the Ministry of Seniors and Accessibility. Each grant is specifically designated to supporting the expansion to a particular Oasis community.
As Oasis is expanded, a network of communities are forming to support the sustainability of all sites. In partnership with Queen's University, McMaster University and the University of Western Ontario, building residents and the onsite Coordinators are working to develop programming based on diverse needs.
