Dementia Care - CARP

Dementia Care

More than 564,000 Canadians are living with dementia, and millions more are providing informal care. Dementia is an illness that robs people of their personality, cognitive ability, independence, control and wellbeing – essential traits that make people who they are. As a result, living in the world of dementia is often frightening, daunting, and unpredictable for patients, as well as family and friends who often provide intensive round-the-clock care.

CARP is fighting for a National Dementia Care Strategy that supports both formal and informal caregivers and ensures Canadians with dementia get the best possible care.
