Photos from the Finding Your Way™ partnership event

On Friday, November 15, the Alzheimer Society of Ontario and the Ontario Seniors’ Secretariat  held a partnership event to help expand the Finding Your Way program to seven Alzheimer Societies in Ontario, the Older Adults Centres’ Association of Ontario and the Aphasia Institute.

Finding Your Way is a program that offers practical advice on how people with dementia can stay safe while staying active in the community. It provides tips and resources for people living with their dementia, their caregivers and community members  on ways to best deal with the risk of going missing.

Representatives from each of the nine partners received an $8,000 grant to roll out the program in their community. We would like to thank the Ontario Seniors’ Secretariat and the Honourable Mario Sergio, Minister Responsible for Seniors, for supporting this initiative.
