Developing Ontario's Dementia Strategy: A Discussion Paper

The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care is continuing the development of a dementia strategy to support people with dementia and their care partners in living well. Developing Ontario’s Dementia Strategy: A Discussion Paper touches on the following six key themes that will guide the development of the strategy:

 

  • Supports for people living with dementia
  • Accessing dementia services
  • Coordinated care
  • Supports for care partners
  • Well trained dementia workforce; and
  • Awareness, stigma and brain health

We invite you to share the paper with your colleagues and partners and encourage them to provide feedback, either by e-mail at dementiastrategy@ontario.ca, or by completing the online survey available at ontario.ca/dementia. All materials are also available in French at ontario.ca/demence

In addition to soliciting feedback online, a town hall will he organized for discussions in several communities. Details on town hall locations, venues and dates will be made available on the webpage once they are confirmed.
