Do you have Dementia? join an advisory group

Do you have Dementia? join an advisory group

by SIAN LOCKWOOD

This group is just getting up and running and you can have your say.

Most people will sit around grousing when things aren’t going well. Don’t.

Here you have a chance to participate in an advisory group and make your opinions known.

It is so important for everyone involved in the care process to have a positive care experience.

A Call for Volunteers – Persons with Dementia Advisory Group The Partnerships in Dementia Care (PiDC) Alliance would like to invite persons with dementia to participate in an advisory group to assist with our research project that is seeking to enhance the culture of dementia care in Canada.

We would like to invite you to participate in an advisory group which would meet monthly in-person (in the Kitchener-Waterloo area) or over the phone (free telephone call)

  • to provide feedback on our process,
  • assist us with decision-making,
  • share information about what persons with dementia might want/need during their journey.

This information will be used to inform our culture change process and enhance care for persons with dementia.
