The Hamilton Council on Aging is expanding the development of dementia-friendly communities in Hamilton and Haldimand. A dementia-friendly community is a place where people living with dementia are understood, respected and supported by others. Most importantly, it is a community where people living with dementia are able to contribute to community life.

We want to have a conversation with you. We want to learn from people living with dementia and their care partners, and this survey will help us start that conversation. Thank you for your participation.

The project is seeking diverse experiences and welcomes special accommodation requests from persons living with dementia and care partners, including requests for printed surveys. Please contact Cheryll at 905.529.7030 ext. 214 or email
