Our research program aims to produce knowledge that contributes to living and working conditions of dignity, respect and health for seniors and all who care for them.
Care workers include:
- Paid care workers, including social workers, nurses, personal support workers and care aides, disability attendants, paid companions and others who provide assistance and support for daily life;
- Workers whose work is necessary for caring environments, including cooks, cleaners, laundry workers, managers and receptionists;
- Unpaid carers, such as family members and friends, volunteers and community groups;
- Emergency services workers, such as paramedics, firefighters and police who provide 9-1-1 emergency medical and crisis responses.
