Designing, testing and spreading great ideas
The Covenant Health Network of Excellence in Seniors’ Health and Wellness exists to build Alberta’s capacity to support seniors better. It gives seniors a voice to define what ‘better’ looks like and engages families, care professionals, academics, and communities in designing, testing and spreading innovative practices. As part of Covenant Health, the Network evaluates ideas across the full spectrum of supports and care for seniors from independent living to acute and continuing care services.

Learn what we're learning
In the past five years, the Network has learned a great deal about what care that honours seniors looks like. We have generated and tested a wide range of ideas to learn how we can ensure all care meets the highest standard, and is honouring.
