Sylvia Davidson, Manager of Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Therapeutic Recreation at Baycrest Health Sciences in Toronto

Throughout her career as an occupational therapist, Sylvia has worked clinically in acute care, rehabilitation, long term care and in the community, largely with a focus on older adults. Sylvia is currently the chair of the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapist’s Dementia Network and is on the Board of the Canadian Occupational Therapy Foundation. The issue of intimacy has always been one of her favourite topics in her work with older adults. 




This webinar series will explore our own values and beliefs about intimacy and aging and the relationship between these sensitive topics when we are supporting persons with dementia. There are challenges presented by the desire for intimacy when faced with physical, mental, psychological, social and environmental barriers. Participants will be encouraged to share some of their unique situations and strategies will be shared and discussed.

This webinar is the first of a two part series in partnership with ASC / CCNA. Part two (which takes place Tuesday April 28) will use case examples to highlight some common challenges that arise when issues of intimacy arise in persons with dementia and strategies will be offered to help us support meaningful relationships.


This integrated KTE webinar event is brought to you by brainXchange in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Canada and the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA).

We ask that you only register for this event if you are certain you can attend, we also encourage participants joining from the same location or organization to share a computer, as we have limited space. Thank you.
