Isolation to Inclusion Challenge

Rethinking social inclusion in the Waterloo Region post-pandemic 

As we prepare for post-COVID life and look forward to days with fewer restrictions, how can we as a community better meet the needs of our older adult community members, particularly those living with dementia and their care partners?

Are there elements that we need to rethink in order to create an inclusive community for all?

This event will explore the challenges to inclusion and will engage youth, older adults and service providers to identify barriers and co-create community-led solutions that can be tested in the spring of 2022. 


February 5 and 12, 2022
Morning session- 10:30 a.m.- noon EST
Afternoon session- 1 – 2:30 p.m. EST


Open to high school and university-aged students, people living with dementia, care partners, interested community members, youth and older adult service providers.
