Dementia Program

Holy Family Home - PhotoThe Dementia Care Program was initiated at Holy Family Home in 2001 with the opening of two dementia care units (St. Francis and St. Michael’s). These two units were renovated to create a more 'homelike' atmosphere, and recreational programming specific to the changing needs of this client population was implemented. In partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society of Manitoba and other facilitators, education related to dementia care is offered to staff on an annual basis. Family support/education group meetings are held, and educational information on Dementia Care is provided. A library of resources related to Dementia and Alzheimer Disease is also available.
