Dementia Ventures is a commitment by the Westside Seniors Hub Partner Organizations to offer diverse activities for people living with dementia and their care partners designed to
               
                                                                 reduce stigma
                                                                 sustain quality of life

The projects listed below are partially funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada via the Building Capacity for Meaningful Participation by People Living with Dementia umbrella project.

 

Current Hub Partner project planning began in early 2020 and is evolving!
