DR. LYNN McDONALD INTERVIEWED BY CTV’S W-5: CRISIS IN CARE 

In February 2013, CTV-W5 did an investigative report about resident-to-resident abuse in long-term care homes.  For this report, Sandie Rinaldo interviewed Dr. Lynn McDonald, Principal Investigator for the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council funded Knowledge Mobilization Partnership for Older Adults, about this important issue.  See the report here.

CTV-W5 also posted details about Dr. McDonald and her research, and provides links to some of our community partners.  See this information here.

 

NEW COMMUNITY PARTNER TO THE KM-OAP – THE MEMORY LOSS FOUNDATION

The Knowledge Mobilization Partnership for Older Adults (KM-OAP) would like to welcome our newest community partner, the Memory Loss Foundation, to our initiative.

The Memory Loss Foundation is a Canadian-based charitable organization that enables low-income seniors with early or late-stage dementia to access specialized dementia care that they could otherwise not afford. They also help health care professionals and caregivers in their immeasurably important mission to help seniors suffering from dementia preserve their dignity, quality of life, and freedom of choice.

The foundation was just launched this past summer.  Learn more about the foundation and its founder, Judy Cohen, at the memory loss foundation website here.
