Empowering Dementia-Friendly Communities
The Empowering Dementia-Friendly Communities, Haldimand, Hamilton is a four-year communities-based project (2020-2023) funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada. Our Goal is to develop, implement and evaluate promising practices, programs and initiatives that improve quality of life for people living with dementia in Hamilton and Haldimand County.
The Empowering Dementia Friendly Communities Project looks to the experience, expertise and leadership of people who live with dementia to learn how we can collectively create more inclusive, dementia-friendly communities.
