Huron County Culture Change Coalition-November Meeting

In mid-November, the Huron County Culture Change Coalition (CCC) met to continue the data analysis process in the Discovery phase of the culture change process.

The Huron County CCC is made up of members from various community groups and is not linked to a single Long Term Care (LTC) facility. These community groups are oriented towards providing care for individuals living with dementia in their home.

Dementia Care in Denmark

The Partnerships in Dementia Care (PiDC) Alliance is focused on culture change in Long Term Care settings for people who are living with dementia. We encourage you to listen to this podcast about remarkable work that is being done in Denmark.  The documentary was recently produced by the CBC's Sunday Edition and is an inspiring listen for anyone interested in how to think about and include individuals living with dementia in the care process.
