Canadian Dementia Network

On behalf of the newly formed Canadian Dementia Network for people living with dementia and care partners we would like to invite you to take our survey and welcome you to join our group.  There is no cost to join. After the survey answers have been analyzed, we will be following up with you to share the results. 

Please click HERE to take this very quick survey.

Objectives of Group

  1. One of the objectives of this group is to connect with other people with lived experience across Canada.   We are not trying to compete with or replace the Alzheimer Societies or other such organizations.  In fact, we want to collaborate with them and support the work they’re doing.  However, we think we have value as a distinct and separate entity.
  2. Another objective is to examine the topics being considered by the Public Health Agency of Canada in the development of the National Dementia Strategy.  One of the survey questions lists these topics.  Please don’t be concerned if the topics seem vague and others seem to overlap.  We will be offering more information about of these topics so that everybody understands them better.   In the meantime, click HERE to view the newly released report from the conference, National Dementia Conference – Inspiring and Informing a National Dementia Strategy for Canada, for your reference.
