What is Dementia education?

A dementia diagnosis not only affects the person living with it, but also their caregivers, friends, family, and the community in which they live. There are nearly 24,000 people over the age of 65 in the Ottawa and Renfrew region who are living with dementia. By 2030, that number will double.

The goal of dementia education is to provide information that helps you expand your knowledge and understanding of dementia and brain health. The more we know about dementia the better able we are to prevent it, and to live well with it.
