This project is a collaboration between The Bruyère Centre for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care; Bruyère Continuing Care; Carleton University; and Java Group Programs.

 

This funding allows recreation staff from Ontario long-term care homes to attend a full-day workshop and receive a Java Program  licence completely FREE OF CHARGE (wage backfill and long-distance travel assistance are available).  Java Music Club and Java Memory Care are standardized peer-support group programs that can be implemented across the full spectrum of care.  The Java programs aim to reduce the stigma associated with support groups by reflecting a warm social setting, incorporating coffee and music.  These evidence-based peer support programs help reduce social isolation and loneliness!
