Focus area 1: Community based, technology enabled or enhanced approaches to supporting aging in place for older adults with dementia, depression, anxiety, bi-polar, schizophrenia, psychosis, and other mental health conditions.

- Medication adherence is a particular issue for those with mental health challenges. - At NRC we been developing smart packaging technologies to help monitor adherence. - We are interested in collaborating with researchers interested in such technology, or other technology developers. Our main areas of interest are: - Improved/augmented packaging - Unobtrusive monitoring for intervention - Data analytics - We are keen to partner with those exploring these and related technologies.

Focus area 3: Community based, technology enabled or enhanced approaches to support caregivers of older adults with mental health conditions including dementia.

We are researchers based at Ontario Shores, one of the four specialty mental health hospitals in Ontario. We'd like to work with a NRC researcher to leverage our expertise in aging and mental health, as well as our skills in evaluation and knowledge mobilization. We have a project idea focused on improving the recovery process of older adults experiencing mental health and cognitive decline, as well as their carers.

My areas of expertise are social isolation and loneliness of older adults. I am currently involved in creating Case Finder (Gatekeeper) type programs for reaching isolated adults in Manitoba. There is an intersection here between social isolation and mental illness, however, my main focus/expertise is on social isolation. I am also involved with working with paramedics examining a community paramedicine case finder approach that links vulnerable adults (all ages) to appropriate help and service. With this latter work, I see a real potential for technological solutions that would aid paramedics in their work in helping some of our most vulnerable people in the community. I would be happy to discuss my ideas further. Thanks for your attention.

- My work focuses on understanding and improving how individuals interact with new and emerging technologies using mixed methods approaches and human centered design. - Current projects examine how older adults, individuals with Parkinson's Disease, and those with mild cognitive impairments learn to use advanced driver assistance and automated vehicle technologies. - We have a high fidelity 6dof driving simulator, eye-trackers, and physiological sensors for collecting human-subjects data.
