‘I’m old, but I’m still here’

This project is an ongoing documentation of a selection of residents in an Eastern Canadian nursing home.

The aim of the work – “By shedding light on the vibrant community that exists within this home, this work aims to battle the stereotype that these institutions are exclusively for those on their death-bed.”

Many older people enter nursing homes with the hopes of gaining new opportunities and friendships before old age severely deteriorates their physical and mental health. But as their engagement with their former communities diminish, they must contend with their loss of relevance in society.
