Project Title: Community Partners in Action
The community of Innisfail recognizes the importance of supporting people living with dementia to live well and age in place with more choice and opportunity. As an early adopter of the Dementia Friendly Toolkit, a Dementia Friendly Community Coordinator will be secured to support healthy aging by bridging the health and social system gap, work towards destigmatizing dementia and build community resilience through knowledge mobilization and early access to resources. Our commitment is to support rural Albertans living with dementia to age in place with dignity, foster inclusivity, and invest in the wellness of their care partners.
