Research tends to ignore the unique experiences of immigrants in suburban areas, and how people create networks of care in their own communities to be able to live well. To address the research gap, the Care and Dementia in the Suburbs project was created in Scarborough, the most diverse suburb in Canada’s largest city (Toronto).
Through this study, we hope to understand what could be changed about suburban communities to make them more accessible and supportive to immigrants living with dementia and their care partners. Compensation is available.
Are you or someone you love living with dementia at home? Do you care for people living with dementia as a formal careworker?
