With funding from the Jalynn Bennett Estate held at Trent University, the University-Integrated Seniors Village Report Series was established in 2021 to provide information for Trent’s University-Integrated Seniors Village development. Hosted by the Trent Centre for Aging & Society, this three-report series features findings based on consultations with experts in the field, a review of academic, research and sector grey literature, and a profile of existing university-integrated Seniors Village initiatives around the world.
