Ontario is helping families, caregivers and communities recognize the risks of dementia, be prepared for incidents, and better ensure that seniors can live safely in their communities.

About 125,000 seniors in Ontario living with dementia are at risk of wandering and going missing each year. That's why the province is putting their safety first by providing nearly $ 600,000 to the Alzheimer Society of Ontario to deliver the Finding Your Way program.

Today, the Minister for Seniors and Accessibility, and the Minister of Long-Term Care at Malton Village Long-Term Care Home with representatives of the Alzheimer Society of Ontario.

Finding Your Way is a multicultural wandering prevention program that provides a number of useful and useful tools for caregivers and caregivers.

This new funding will help you to find more people in your community, and you will need to know more about it.
