Organization: Bruyere Continuing Care - Volunteer Resources

Commitment: Long term 6 months to a year

Availability: Days

Language Preference: English

Number of Positions Available: 5

Location: Ottawa - East

Deadline: May 31, 2018


Bruyère Continuing Care is partnering with other senior care partners in Ontario and with a Norwegian Industry partner, Motitech AS to study the added value of a motivational healthcare solution called Motiview that may encourage participation in cycling activity for individuals in Long Term Care settings. Some of our residents spend most of their time inactive, have a low mood and have dementia. Research shows that increasing physical activity for these individuals may provide an enjoyable and fulfilling activity, improve mobility, mood, and sleep and reduce fall risks!
