LIVING the Dementia Journey named Best New Product of 2017

The Ontario Long Term Care Association (OLTCA) held their annual Awards Gala on November 28, 2017 to honour the achievements, innovations, and hard work of the long-term care sector.  We are thrilled that the LIVING the Dementia Journey program was awarded the Best New Long-Term Care Product or Service of the Year!

LIVING the Dementia Journey was created through a collaboration between the Murray Alzheimer Research and Education Program (MAREP) at University of Waterloo, Schlegel Villages and the RIA. It is an evidence-based training program that builds awareness, understanding, and practical skills to support persons living with dementia with compassion, dignity and respect.

Congratulations to the LIVING the Dementia Journey team, and all of the award winners that were honoured yesterday!
