October UPDATE






October 2016




An Invitation to Lived Experience Network Advisors,

Hello Everyone,  This is an invitation to participate in our upcoming Lived Experience Cafe "Live (typed) Chat event.

PLEASE NOTE the date change. Usually we meet the first Tuesday of the month but because I will be leading an advisory meeting in Gananoque that afternoon, we have switched the date to Wednesday, October 5th from 6:30- 8 PM. 


This month’s SE Ontario Lived Experience Chat question came out of conversations with the (Long Term Care Home) Cooperative of Lanark, Leeds and Grenville. During a discussion about education, the topic of the importance of providing education for family members was raised.
 As a family member/care partner of someone living with dementia or similar diagnoses, what are some key educational topics you:

1.     Would like to see shared with your family council group or at an educational event for family members/ care partners living in Long Term Care or Retirement Homes?

2.     Would like to see offered to families and care partners who are still living in the community

3.     Feel have been very helpful to you as a care partner?


Visit . Once you have signed up to join the website community, then just click the link that says:  log in at chat time.


To learn what dates I will be in your area, visit the calendar on In October I will be visiting Alzheimer Society Support/Advisory groups in: Gananoque, Picton, Bancroft and Napanee. I'm always happy to get emails and phone calls too. If you wish to unsubscribe from this email, please let me know and I will remove you from the list.

Kind Regards,

Sharon Osvald
