Community Week 2023 was a resounding success! We owe this success to everyone who participated in learning about living well with dementia. With over 150 participants attending eight events across the province, it is clear that our communities are making strides toward becoming more dementia-friendly.

Community Week is a week-long series of events held province-wide. These events aim to feature presentations from individuals living with dementia and their caregivers, sharing their experiences and local resources that are available to assist throughout their journey with dementia.

At this years events, we saw a strong eagerness among participants to actively engage and gain insight.  These events have highlighted that the bridge between those with dementia and local support networks is just a phone call away! With over 16,000 Nova Scotians living with dementia and thousands more caring for and supporting them, this education and access to resources is crucial for the future of our aging population.
