It is estimated that there are over 200,000 individuals living with dementia in the province of Ontario and this number continues to climb. In an effort to better serve our clients living with dementia and their loved ones, we wanted to do our part in creating a Dementia Friendly Ontario.
Earlier this year, we received in person training by the Alzheimer Society as part of their Blue Umbrella Program. This unique program is designed not only to educate organizations about the everyday experiences of individuals living with dementia but also to offer practical suggestions for ways to improve customer service and become more dementia-friendly.
The training provided us with wealth of information and useful strategies that we can implement to improve our workplace for those living with dementia. We are very proud to say that Persona Law Group is now Dementia-Friendly.
