Participants learned about The Brain Health and Wellness Project, an innovative national project at the frontlines of care to promote brain health and reduce dementia risk. The health behaviour change tools used in the project were developed by Fountain of Health Initiation, a national non-profit to promote health and wellness.
Following a review of project evidence and rationale, participants also received some “how to” training in a 3 step process to activate health behaviours in frontline care. All participants were invited to get involved in the project-- simply try the tools out in practice with 5 clients in the coming months, and / or receive follow up and support to help their clients succeed in setting and meet key health goals.
