November News - SE Ontario Live Chat and Visits


An Invitation to Lived Experience Network Advisors,

Hello Everyone,  If you are reading this page for the first time, I’d like to extend a warm welcome to the SE Ontario Lived Experience Network. We likely have met at an Alzheimer Society support group or Family Council Meeting and I am so pleased you can join the conversation!

This is an invitation to participate in our upcoming Lived Experience Cafe "Live (typed) Chat event this Tuesday, November 2nd from 6:30-8PM


November’s Live Chat question comes from Dr. Julia Kirkham, Queen’s University, Providence Care – Mental Health Services. Dr. Kirkham would like to ask those with lived experience two questions that have been coming up in her work recently:

 1. When it comes to admissions to Long Term Care, in your opinion: Should people be “bumped” from the crisis list  when they go to the Emergency Room? If not, how should it work if people are waiting for Long Term Care in                hospital?

2. More often people (especially with behavioural symptoms) are being refused admission to Long Term Care? Should this be allowed? (and my question): If yes – What would a better solution be – community, living situation, etc. ?


Visit . Once you have signed up to join the website community, then go the page called Chat and click the link says:  log in at chat time. If you have any issues, send me an email to  and I will do my best to walk you through.


To learn what dates I will be in your area, visit the calendar on In November I will be visiting Alzheimer Society Support/Advisory groups or Long Term Care Home Family groups and volunteers  in: Picton, Trenton, Kingston and Tweed. 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
