If you will be in Calgary or area on the evening of August 29/2018, this may be an event you want to attend. Given that dementia is becoming a reality for more people, the information provided is apt to be relevant to you or someone you know.
Do you live or work in the province of Alberta and are you:
- an older adult (65 years of age and over),
- a caregiver of an older adult (spouse; family member; friend; neighbour), or
- a clinician or health/social care provider (doctor; nurse; care aides; allied health provider; pharmacist; social worker) working with older adults?
If so, the Scientific Office of Alberta’s Seniors Health Strategic Clinical Network invites you to complete the following survey. By responding to the survey, you will be helping to determine the direction/priorities for future research and initiatives in the area of seniors’ health.
In an effort to raise the voice of caregivers, Carers Canada and the Canadian Home Care Association are seeking friends and family members who care for a person with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias to share their experience by completing a private and secure on-line survey. The survey should take about 15 minutes to complete.
- Feedback received from this survey will be used to inform the federal government in advancing Bill C-233, an Act respecting a national strategy for Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. This Act directs the federal Minister of Health to develop and implement a comprehensive national strategy for the care of people living with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementias, as well as their families and caregivers.
- Please note that the survey closes on February 5, 2018.
