LIVING the Dementia Journey: Overview Workshop

February 1, 2019

The RIA is offering complimentary “LIVING the Dementia Journey” workshops in partnership with the Waterloo Wellington LHIN for long-term care homes within the region. This professional development opportunity is part of the Behavioural Supports Ontario (BSO) Enhancement Fund.

LIVING the Dementia Journey (LDJ) is an award-winning, evidence-informed training program for those who support people living with dementia. Participants gain awareness and understanding that changes not only the way they view dementia, but the way they support people living with it.

The Overview Workshop is a 1-day training session intended for team members at long-term care homes. The workshop includes a workbook and certificate for each participant, as well as lunch and refreshment breaks.

Please note: participants must attend the entire workshop to receive the certificate.
