Are you an Indigenous person living with dementia or a family member / friend of someone living with dementia?

The Canadian Centre for Elder Law (CCEL) invites you to be part of conversations to share your perspective about engaging people living with dementia in decision-making.

Participants will receive an honorarium. Our goal is to develop culturally-safe resources and materials for supporting the decision-making of people living with dementia. To learn more or sign up, contact Jess Fehrenbacher at or 778-548-9996.

Where those of us in the room may have debated policy or wording, patient voices made sure patients were top of mind. And as a result, significant improvements were made to simplify something that was otherwise complex. Patient voices at the table bring us back to reality in terms of what we are trying to achieve.
