Social Isolation and Dementia: Practical Tools for Communities and People Living with Dementia

September 18, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Free

Description

Partner - brainXchange Online Event

SUMMARY:

Dementia can change how a person connects with others and their community, meaning people living with dementia and their care partners are at a higher risk of social isolation. The opposite is also true: older adults who experience social isolation may have noticeable impacts on their physical, emotional, and mental health. This presentation will explore the relationship between social isolation and dementia and introduce the audience to two practical tools for enhancing social connections.

 

PRESENTERS:

Carrie McAiney PhD
Carrie McAiney is an Associate Professor in the School of Public Health Sciences at the University of Waterloo, and Schlegel Research Chair in Dementia and Scientific Director of the Murray Alzheimer Research and Education Program (MAREP) at the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging (RIA). She is also the Knowledge Translation and Exchange Co-Lead for the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging. Carrie’s research involves working collaboratively with persons living with dementia and family care partners to develop and evaluate approaches to enhance their well-being.
