PiDC Alliance at CAG 2014

PiDC Alliance presents at CAG 2014: Landscapes of Aging

On October 17th 2014 the PiDC Alliance had the pleasure of presenting a symposium at the 43rd Annual Scientific and Educational Meeting of the Canadian Association on Gerontology 2014 - the Landscapes of Aging.

The symposium Changing the culture of dementia care: The work of the Partnerships in Dementia Care (PIDC) Alliance included an overview of the culture change work happening in four diverse dementia care settings.

The first presentation Dawn and Discovery process rooted in "Culture" at Yee Hong Centre for Geriatric Care described how community-oriented values are being integrated with East-Asian culture to foster caring relationships within a LTC home.

The second presentation Partnering together to Dream and Design a new culture of dementia care shares the process, strategies, learnings, and tools used to envision new possibilities and create aspiration statements being used to guide a culture change process within a dementia-specific LTC home.

The third presentation The Heart of Dementia Care in a Community Setting: Insights on Relationships from the Huron County Culture Change Coalition presented research findings to illuminate key relational elements that exist for various partners involved in dementia care in a rural community setting.

The fourth presentation Putting LIVING First: Reflections on the Culture Change Journey at The Village of Wentworth Heights focused on learnings from a process in which residents, family members, staff members, and researchers work together to put living first in their LTC home. 

The full presentation is available at: Changing the Culture of Dementia Care: The Work of the Partnerships in Dementia Care (PiDC) Alliance
