The Indigenous Cognition & Aging Awareness Research Exchange (I-CAARE) team based in Ontario, Canada has been developing culturally safe fact sheets with Indigenous people living with memory loss and their caregivers since 2014. The fact sheets were created based on a need identified in an earlier project, Perceptions of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias among Aboriginal people in Ontario. Click here for more information on this earlier work. The I-CAARE team has also produced a methodology report to explain how this was done.
Please note that each fact sheet has a blank space for you to add your own local organization’s contact information. All fact sheets also have pages in multiples of four, so that they can be printed both on regular printer paper or as booklets.The Path of Dementia prints best on 11″ x 17″ paper or larger.
