Our team embraces the following values when collaborating with our clients and their care partners while advancing the study of aging:

  • A whole-person, interdisciplinary approach: Our assessment, planning, referral and navigation services embrace all available disciplinary perspectives in order to consider the entire person, including physical and psychological well-being, as well as the strength of their social support network and resources.
  • Elder-driven partnerships: Our services are driven by and centered around the client values, preferences and goals, and as a genuine partnership with the entire care and support team.
  • Cultural humility: Our services are reflective of client cultural values, ensuring all services and supports are offered in a manner consistent with the client's cultural needs and preferences.
  • Experiential learning: Our clinic serves as an educational center for both current and future providers, allowing for the development of skills necessary for working with an interdisciplinary clinic providing whole-person approaches to care of older adults.
  • Knowledge generation: Through various research activities, our clinic supports all disciplines represented across the University to further the knowledge base regarding the aging experience and appropriate supports and services.
