Circle of Care Dementia Project: Next Steps

With funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada Dementia Community Investment Fund, the Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) and Amautiit Nunavut Inuit Women’s Association sought input on a toolkit to help family members and friends caring for people living with dementia. Amautiit interviewed family caregivers across Nunavut to understand more about the key messages they would like to convey and the kinds of advice and information that would be helpful in the toolkit. Our next step will be a circle meeting by phone with the people we interviewed to confirm that their thoughts and knowledge have been captured accurately.

In 2021-2, Amautiit and NWA are planning an in-person event in Nunavut for the next phase of the Circle of Care Dementia Project.
