Ontario Improving Alzheimer’s Support Services

More Service Providers to Receive Training in Wandering Prevention

Queens Park - Ontario is investing $761,500 in the Alzheimer Society of Ontario’s Finding Your Way program to help improve training and reach more people who come into contact with persons affected by dementia.

The Finding Your Way program is a multicultural safety campaign that helps people with dementia stay safe and active, while helping to prevent the risk of wandering and going missing. The program’s training services will be enhanced this year to include first-responders as well as supportive housing and retirement homes staff.

The funding will also help the Alzheimer Society of Ontario:

• Launch an enhanced website
• Deliver new eLearning seminars and town halls
• Increase volunteer recruitment activities on campuses and in the private sector
• Distribute 20,000 new brochures.

Investing in services and supports to help keep seniors safe is part of the government’s plan to build stronger and healthier communities.
