Let's Talk Care: Fresh Perspectives on Long-Term Care
6. Living with Dementia
Show Notes

Emily and Marco host SALTY advisory group members and dementia advocates Jim Mann and Faye Forbes. In this episode we discuss the importance of including persons living with dementia in research, retaining personhood, control and dignity, concerns surrounding long-term care, and how to create a more welcoming and inclusive environment for residents and families. Faye and Jim give tips on how to communicate and have better interactions with people living with dementia. A timely episode as January is World Alzheimer's Month, we hope this will provide insight, awareness, and help to break down stigma.
