The Ontario Centre for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care (CLRI) at Bruyère had the opportunity to exhibit at the 8th Annual Canadian Conference on Dementia held at the Westin Hotel in Ottawa on October 1-3, 2015. The Ontario CLRI showcased its new bilingual dementia eLearning module for new and current staff in long-term care homes titled, “Caring for persons with dementia: An education resource for long-term care staff”.

The module, based on the Champlain Dementia Network’s 2009/2010 booklet, “What you need to know to work with persons with dementia: A primer for those starting to work in dementia care”, provides an overview of dementia, the 8As of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. The module includes four different scenarios, each narrated by a different care staff who provides ideas, approaches and strategies LTC staff can use when they are providing care to residents living with dementia. The four scenarios include: Providing dementia care in the dining room, during activities, during personal care and during lifts and transfers.

The module can be downloaded or viewed for free.
