Funding Opportunity Announcement: Social Inclusion of individuals with dementia and carers

We are pleased to announce that the new CIHR funding opportunity on Social Inclusion of individuals with dementia and carers has been launched.

Living with dementia can prove to be a barrier to social inclusion, both for the individual affected, as well as their carers. For example, day-to-day activities, such as driving, making financial and health care decisions, and remaining independent in the community are key areas where the challenges for the person with dementia can be the greatest.

Social inclusion implies that an individual is meaningfully interacting with others and participating in society. It corresponds to the daily life of persons, their habits, and the completion of their personal and professional objectives. This includes access to social, health and medical care, as well as community benefits. The concept of social inclusion highlights the need to remove barriers to equal participation in society and to assure that inclusion is free from discrimination.

This funding opportunity is launched in partnership with the CIHR Institute of Aging (IA), the CIHR Institute of Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction (INMHA) and the Alzheimer Society Canada (ASC).

Application Deadline: 2016-09-20
