 ''Loneliness and social isolation are now being recognized as public health issues in Ontario. In his recent report, Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. David C. Williams highlights the growing evidence that loneliness and social isolation have negative impacts on our health and wellbeing. He also recognizes the need to understand how community structures have shifted over time and why some Ontarians may not have a stronger sense of belonging.

In this webinar, Dr. Williams discusses his report Connected Communities: Healthier Together. Dr. Williams answered questions about the purpose of these reports, as well as the reason for the community focus and the call for investment in community. He talked about the value of community, being connected to community, and the lack of data surrounding social isolation and loneliness.''

    safepathways presentationcover 2015"Safe Pathways: supporting dementia in the justice system is a collaborative community approach, to support and guide individuals with dementia and their care partners away from and/or through the Guelph and Wellington County Judicial System while maintaining dignity and respect.

    This project is working to reduce the likelihood that seniors with dementia will enter the criminal justice system due to behaviours that may cause harm and result in a criminal offence.  A criminal offence can range from less serious to more serious in nature. The overall intent of the project is to improve the quality of life for individuals with dementia and their care partners. To reach these goals, the project will consist of:

    1. developing an education and awareness initiative for police services, care partners, health care providers, and the community that will identify the risk factors and legal procedures.
    2.  working with police services, the justice system, health care providers, and key stakeholders to explore best practices and develop a Safe Pathway response program for persons with dementia (with a focus on persons with frontal lobe dementia) who may be at risk of entering the criminal justice system.
    3. creating a support system for those persons with dementia and their care partners who have already entered the judicial system.
