Research & Development

The Selwyn Institute for Ageing and Spirituality sponsors and facilitates clinical, spiritual and social research projects, which are aimed at enhancing the health and wellbeing of older people in New Zealand.

This is designed to inform decision-makers working to improve the lives of residents and patients in aged care facilities or older people living independently in their communities. We partner closely with various tertiary institutions and other organisations who are researching areas such as clinical processes and the impact on aged care residents, physical movement and older people, and the impact of technology on health in later life, to name just some of the research studies currently being conducted at Selwyn sites.
