About the University of Victoria Centre on Aging – Lander Office

The University of Victoria – Centre on Aging is a multidisciplinary research centre to advance knowledge in the field of aging based on the twin standards of scientific rigor and applied relevance. The overall goals are to contribute to improving the health and quality of life with an increasingly diverse population of older adults, and to assist their families, health care providers, and governments in meeting the challenges and potentials of an aging society.
In 2002 the Ladner satellite office was established in Delta, BC. A major focus of activity of the Ladner Office is recruiting and training volunteers to deliver self-management programs and training health care professionals to use self-management support strategies when interacting with patients.
