Event description
Dementia Care for Indigenous Peoples

About this event

Presenter:

Sharlene Webkamigad, RN, Ph.D. Candidate in the School of Kinesiology and Health Sciences, Laurentian University

Summary:

Indigenous worldviews of dementia have been shown to differ from non-Indigenous worldviews. This has resulted in culturally safe approaches to care that are reflective of the beliefs of local Indigenous older adults. The main goal of this session for those who work in long-term care settings is to provide an introduction about Indigenous perspectives to care for individuals and families who are impacted by dementia. In this presentation, approaches will be described, and you will learn where and how to access resources for families of Indigenous persons with dementia.

This event takes place at 12:00 PM ET (Eastern Time)
