Celebrating over 15,000 Person-Centred Language pledges!

Posted On: November 7, 2023

We’ve reached over 15,000 Person-Centred Language pledges!

We have reached a new milestone in the Person-Centred Language (PCL) initiative. As of September, 26 2023 , 15,006  health care providers and persons with lived experience have committed to changing the way we interact with and refer to people living with dementia and other complex mental health conditions. Thank you to everyone who reviewed our commitment statements posters, signed our pledge, and encouraged colleagues, co-residents, family and friends to do the same.
