Call for Volunteers - Persons with Dementia Advisory Group

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 know how important it is for everyone involved in the care process to have a positive care experience.

We would like to invite you to participate in an advisory group which would meet monthly in-person (Kitchener-Waterloo), or bi-monthly over the phone (toll-free) to provide feedback on our process, assist us with decision-making, and 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. 

If you are interested in participating please contact:

Knowledge Translation in Dementia Care: It Takes a Community Workshop

Knowledge Translation in Dementia Care
It Takes a Community Workshop


On May 20, 2014 Dr. Sherry Dupuis, Dr. Jenny Ploeg, Dr. Carrie McAiney and Sian Lockwood (Partnerships in Dementia Care Alliance) had the pleasure of attending the Knowledge Translation in Dementia Care Workshop led by Dr. Catherine Ward-Griffin (Arthur Labatt Family School of Nursing, Western University).                                                            Pictures

Funded by the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR), the workshop examined the challenges and opportunities within community-based dementia care. The goal of the workshop was to develop an action plan that will assist Canadians in achieving dementia-friendly communities and create new and diverse partnerships that will mobilize and advocate for community resources for persons living with dementia and their families.

Collaborators from 25 regional, provincial, and national organizations, as well as researchers from Western University, Lakehead University, McMaster University and the University of Waterloo contributed to planning and organizing the workshop.
