Baycrest and The Royal Conservatory of Music
Research study: Exploring the experience of artful engagement with older adults
Baycrest has embarked on an innovative study in partnership with the Royal Conservatory. With generous funding from the Trillium Foundation, this collaborative initiative will be exploring the impact of involvement in the professional arts for groups of older adults.
Using a mixed-method design, this study will gather both qualitative and quantitative data to help us understand how the professional arts affects health and wellbeing including particular domains of cognition and social engagement.
