University-Integrated Seniors Village
Trent is advancing research on healthy aging and helping reduce the long waitlist for aged care in Peterborough through implementation of a University-Integrated Seniors Village, anchored by a long-term care home.
Location, location, location
The Seniors Village will be located at the north-west corner of Water Street and Woodland Drive. Already connected to municipal servicing and transit, this location surrounds the Seniors Village with nature and offers quick connection to the campus.
A mission-driven project
Building on Trent’s reputation as a globally recognized age-friendly university and the research expertise in the Trent Centre for Aging & Society, the Seniors Village will provide hands-on learning opportunities for students, advance research into aging, while answering the call for more housing in Peterborough for older adults.
