Resource Centre on Aging
The Resource Centre on Aging is part of the Regional Geriatric Assessment Programme and is hosted by the Civic Campus of the Ottawa Hospital. Located on the 1st floor between A1 and B1 just turn in at the door across from the fish tank and piano. The purpose of the Resource Centre is to develop and maintain a collection of information resources in the area of clinical geriatrics and gerontology in order to advance research and education in care of the elderly. The collection consists of approximately 600 titles, including books, government documents and publications by various societies and groups. The material covers statistics, research methods, assessment, and nursing care, all with a focus on the elderly. Of course there is a vast amount of material on diseases specifically related to aging and healthy aging. The Centre subscribes to 12 journals - all in the area of geriatrics. In addition to this the Centre has a collection of videos covering various aspects of aging and care of the aged. Some examples of these would be Alzheimer's disease, depression, elder abuse, medication problems and use of restraints. The Centre has access to the University of Ottawa's Polaris system of databases.

remain self-sufficient, helping them become involved and integrated in the community and ensuring
senior participation in planning and improving the services that affect them.
The Council provides its services through a volunteer board of directors comprising seniors, a
full-time Executive Director and two staff members, with over 200 regular senior volunteers who
