The Alzheimer Society of Ontario hosted its second annual Finding Your Way® Provincial Forum on Thursday March 10th. Close to 100 people came together to see how we all can help people with dementia live safely in the community. Many partnering organizations were represented – supportive housing providers, retirement home staff as well as paramedics and other first responders. The Alzheimer Society was happy to see such an interest from our partners.
The Hon. Mario Sergio, Minister Responsible for Seniors and Indira Naidoo-Harris, Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care were both in attendance. They brought warm greetings and announced the Ontario Seniors’ Secretariat’s ongoing financial support of Finding Your Way!
This forum showcased the great work happening across Ontario to support seniors, additionally the brand new Finding Your Way website was launched at this event.
