Project Title: Neighbourhood Time: A new approach to Recreation and Leisure for Increased reach and impact
This project will support formalizing a curriculum and rollout process for Neighbourhood Time, a leisure support program that empowers older adults to choose leisure activities which reflect the unique interests, skills, and life stories of each individual, thereby creating opportunities to exercise self-determination, independence and growth. The intent is to better reflect the needs of persons living with dementia, enabling them to do things that they did at home which are familiar and meaningful to them.
