The Centre for Education at Baycrest
has been working hard to create an online resource to lessen the complexity, confusion
and challenge of locating reliable information about dementia for caregivers
and those with concerns about dementia and memory loss. With these goals in
mind, I am proud to announce the launch of Dementia
Resources from Around the World.
website provides access to a selection of the best available senior-friendly
web resources on dementia. It is designed for both individuals experiencing
symptoms of the disorder and their caregivers. The selected websites provide
information on dementia, including risk factors, signs and symptoms, diagnosis,
treatment options, strategies to cope with daily life challenges, and available
support groups. The information is available in multiple formats (i.e., video,
PDF, pamphlets, games) to make it accessible to everyone. These websites have
been evaluated to ensure they provide reliable and valid information on dementia.
Please share this new resource
with your clients and colleagues (internal and external). If you have any feedback or suggestions about additional
websites that should be included on the site, please contact Dr. David Conn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
