Event Date: Apr 23, 2019
This webinar will share findings from an Ottawa-based research study funded by the Alzheimer Society of Canada. The study, which is currently in its last year of funding, looked at the experiences of place, space and neighbourhood of care partners of people with dementia. How do care partners interact with the built, natural, and social environment? How are they supported locally? The findings have implications for both research and practice, and the development of dementia friendly communities in Canada.
This integrated KTE webinar event is brought to you by brainXchange in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Canada and the Canadian Consortium of Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA).
