Senate has published their report on Dementia this past week with 29
recommendations. Dr. Marie-France Rivard had presented to this committee on
behalf of the CAGP, Bonnie Schroeder had done so on behalf of CCSMH, and Dr.
Frank Molnar spoke on behalf of CGS, along with several other respected
speakers. There is also a link to an executive summary of the report and an
information pamphlet on dementia and its impact. Thanks to all the participants
for their contribution.
Senate are putting together a short video about this initiative which I have
participated in which will be available soon.
see the report here: http://www.parl.gc.ca/content/sen/committee/421/SOCI/Reports/SOCI_6thReport_DementiaInCanada-WEB_e.pdf
interesting relative document: http://sencaplus.ca/news/national-dementia-strategy-needed-to-foster-dementia-friendly-communities
is anticipated that these initiatives will lead to a better quality of life for
Canadians living with dementia. Please distribute this information widely to
gain traction and increase its impact. Thank you.
