“The Dementia Society has been an incredible resource to our OC Transpo outreach staff in providing training and awareness about the importance of understanding the impact of dementia in our community. Through the efforts of the Dementia Society, we have been able to equip a number of our staff with knowledge that allows them to identify and work with customers who may need their greater understanding.
