resource image

Previously recorded webinar from January 24, 2024. 

People living with dementia and caregivers have a right to information that is aligned with their unique culture, and can support them to live fulfilling lives and have hope for their future.

It is critical that resources and education are culturally-relevant as well as available in multiple languages.

You will hear from Carrie McAiney, Schlegel Research Chair in Dementia, and Navjot Gill, Ph.D. Candidate – Public Health (Aging, Health and Well-being), as they discuss the importance of culturally-specific dementia resources, learn how Forward with Dementia is addressing cultural gaps, and co-designing dementia resources for the Chinese, Italian, and South Asian communities.

You will find the resources introduced in this video at www.forwardwithdementia.ca
