We’re researching how businesses can engage people with dementia meaningfully and respectfully in the design, testing, and commercialization of apps intended for their use. For this research, we’re looking for people living with dementia to use, test, and provide feedback on a digital memory aid currently being developed. Follow the link for more information.
The Murray Alzheimer Research and Education Program (MAREP) is involved in a number of on-going and new initiatives that have made significant advances in translating research into practical tools to ensure research gets to those who can use it the most. These initiatives consist of workshops and training (in-person and online) designed for staff working in residential care environments such as long-term care homes, and train the trainer programs for educators. MAREP has also developed a significant number of products and resources for a wide variety of audiences, such as persons living with dementia, family care partners, and professionals working in the dementia field. These products and resources have been created in a variety of mediums including websites, DVDs, listserv and RSS feeds, print documents, and also accessible Portable Document Files (PDF).
Questions regarding our MAREP’s education and knowledge translation workshops, training, products or services should be directed to Lisa Loiselle.
