With up to 1 in 10 older Canadians reportedly experiencing some form of abuse, as our population ages - issues of abuse are unfortunately only expected to grow.
Growing levels of caregiver distress, inter-generational financial disparities, and changing family structures are contributing to this growth, but dementia is one particular disease state that also drive issues of abuse forward faster than ever before.
This webinar presents a brief overview of the current abuse issues that can arise for people living with dementia, and case studies demonstrating how clinicians, policy makers and society can better respond to ensure these issues can be prevented whenever possible.
