Grenier, Amanda BW


Amanda Grenier is the Director of the Gilbrea Centre for the Study of Aging where she explores the social constructs and challenges of an aging population. Amanda is using subjective interpretations of aging to examine and improve public policies and organizational practices. She has studied older adults’ lived-experiences and narratives with regards to late life transitions, impairment, and frailty in order to explore how these narratives can inform contemporary planning efforts. She is focused on how we frame and address aging in Western societies, and how these interpretations are subject to time, place, and contexts of aging and late life. Amanda is currently working on several research projects and developments, such as exploring the intersections of aging and homelessness in Montreal, and bridging the gaps between concepts, research, and practice in social gerontology.
