The Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care will host a Windsor Town Hall session this Thursday as part of a public consultation process to inform communities about the dementia strategy document, Developing Ontario’s Dementia Strategy: A Discussion Paper.
The Town Hall will provide community members the opportunity to have their say on what is needed from an Ontario dementia strategy. The Town Hall will cover a range of topics including, how to better support people living with dementia and their care partners, creating more coordinated and accessible services, enhancing skills of the dementia workforce, and identifying priorities in research and brain health.
“We are honoured that the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care has selected Windsor as a host location,” said Sally Bennett Olczak, CEO, Alzheimer Society of Windsor and Essex County, “There are approximately 7,300 local citizens living with dementia in Windsor-Essex and we are glad the Ministry has recognized them.”
It takes place on Thursday, November 3rd, 2016 from 6pm to 8pm at the Alzheimer Society of Windsor and Essex County located at 2135 Richmond Street.
