Revera Report on Ageism: Independence and Choice As We Age
Based on a survey of more than 2,400 Canadians, including a robust sample of almost 600 people ages 77+, the Revera Report on Ageism: Independence and Choice As We Age was released by Revera and the Sheridan Centre for Elder Research in May of 2016. Among the reports key findings are that ageism is the most tolerated form of social prejudice in Canada, and many well-intentioned Canadians are, in fact, depriving their elders of the independence and choice that are crucial to aging well.

The Power of Music, Alzheimer Society
Music can be a powerful source of joy, comfort and inspiration in our lives. People living with dementia and their family members attest to the important role music has in their lives. Research, some of it proudly sponsored by the Alzheimer Society, confirms this. The Alzheimer Society created the video, "When words fail, music speaks" to show the positive impact of music. This video, released at the Alzheimer's Disease International Conference in March 2011, in Toronto, won a 2011 Telly Award for best online video at the 32nd annual Telly Awards.
