Dementia Factsheets

1/1

The team at I-CAARE has been developing culturally safe factsheets with Indigenous people living with memory loss and their caregivers since 2014, based on a need identified in an earlier project, Perceptions of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias among Aboriginal people in Ontario. Click here for more information on this earlier work. We have also produced a methodology report to explain how we did this. 

 

Learn more about the development of these factsheets, and keep your eyes open for future articles in this area.

 

These factsheets were originally designed with a broad audience in mind - from coast to coast to coast in Canada, and we recognize that individual communities and nations may have unique perspectives and needs surrounding dementia factsheets. If you have questions, or want to explore adaptations to the factsheets to suit your community's needs, please contact us

Please note that each factsheet has a blank space for you to add your own local organization's contact information. All factsheets also have pages in multiples of four, so that they can be printed both on regular printer paper or as booklets.The Path of Dementia prints best on 11" x 17" paper or larger.

If you would like to cite our factsheets, please follow the format used below. Thank you.
