Research Study with Older Adults

Watson Centre Society for Brain Health is currently recruiting otherwise healthy older adults (65 years or older) who are experiencing early signs of cognitive impairment. Researchers will be looking to obtain basic demographic information such as age, gender, education level and exercise frequency. We will be asking individuals to complete a series of assessments to assess cognitive function and quality of life (over 3 testing periods). All information will be kept confidential and participation is voluntary.

The purpose of the research study is to look at the potential for intensive cognitive intervention in slowing cognitive decline in older adults.

Program is delivered online, via your personal computer.

Digital Access Burnaby Fundraiser

Seniors, families and individuals in Burnaby are in need of phones, tablets and computers (laptops) to stay connected during COVID-19.  Burnaby needs your help!  Many people in Burnaby still do not have a device that can connect to the internet.


Since COVID-19, Burnaby Neighbourhood House (BNH), in conjunction with Digital Access Burnaby, have been seeking donations of used tech devices and have recently received a donation of tech devices from Microsoft and an anonymous donation of $1000. These are amazing contributions! But too many people still need devices.

The Digital Acess Burnaby fundraiser has been created on GoFundMe to raise more funds for this important project.

For more details on donations and how you can also donate your devices, please visit the Digital Access Burnaby GoFundMe page.
