Welcome to our Blog!

We want to create a space for people whose lives are affected by dementia to meet one another, learn from one another, and to share their story. In doing so, we hope that a sense of hope and empowerment will be found.

 

On this blog, you can expect:

  • Stories from care partners who are caring for a loved one – lessons learned and hardships overcome

  • Encouragement and suggestions from professionals who are versed in self-care tools and strategies

  • Stories from care providers who are striving to deliver person centred care in formalized settings

  • Information from service providers who are working to make the journey easier for people who are affected by dementia

  • Information on important resources that can help in the delivery of care

  • Practical and creative ideas that can be easily implemented in care
