Dementia Studies community college program
The Alzheimer Society of Ontario supports the Dementia Studies/Working with Dementia Clients program, a comprehensive training program in dementia care at many community colleges across Ontario. If you are currently providing care, or want to start a career providing care for people with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias in a health-care setting, this course is a good place to start. The program will help you learn or improve existing skills in delivering the specialized care required by people with dementia. Also, family members, volunteers or interested community members may complete this program to learn more about dementia and how to provide care to a person living with the disease.
Ensuring quality of care
Without standards, it's hard to measure progress and success. That's the idea behind the Alzheimer Society of Ontario's Ensuring Quality Standards Project, a five-year initiative, funded by an Ontario Trillium grant.
