More people are diagnosed with dementia every year. Right now there are over 230,000 people living with dementia in Ontario. That number is expected to increase to about 255,000 by 2020. People living with dementia have the right to live in their community and remain contributing members- we are all in this together!
A Dementia Friendly Community is a place where people living with dementia are: Understood, Respected, Supported, Included and have choice and control over their day-to-day lives and level of engagement. Dementia Friendly Communities is gaining momentum across the globe and thousands of Ontarians are showing their support for people living with dementia and their care partners.
Join this webinar to learn more about the Dementia Friendly Communities approach, linkages to age-friendly communities, and how to include these practices within your current work.
A resource package will be provided to participants following the event.
This event is hosted by the Ontario Age-Friendly Communities Outreach Program.
