On February 8, The Brenda Strafford Foundation was pleased to partner with West Campus Development Trust to participate in The Importance of Home, Community and Care as We Age, a panel event hosted at the Kerby Centre.

The Brenda Strafford Foundation's President and CEO, Mike Conroy, joined other panelists from West Campus Development Trust, University of Calgary, Alberta Health Services and the Kerby Centre to discuss questions from attendees and virtual viewers that centered on the importance that our environments have on our quality of life as we age.

The talk explored the needs people face as they are getting older — like the physical design of our homes, the need for senior-oriented flexibility in them, and the quality of healthcare at home for aging populations.

The topic of aging-in-place is one that both University District and The Brenda Strafford Foundation champions. U/D are building a walkable neighbourhood, a well-connected environment, and adding community partners, like The Brenda Strafford Foundation, who will play a major role in the community with the recently announced seniors’ residence Cambridge Manor.
