Dementia in the North East LHIN

Aligned with NE LHIN priorities to improve access to care and coordination, the NE LHIN Dementia Steering Committee committee is working to improve the system of care for people living with dementia, their families and caregivers. Work to develop the strategy will identify issues and gaps for people living with dementia and their caregivers; strengthen collaboration between organizations providing dementia services; and increase education on where and how people can access dementia services within Northeastern Ontario. 

The NE LHIN Dementia Steering Committee is responding to the region’s sizeable growth in seniors (from 20% of the population now – 115,000, to 27% in 10 years - 151,000).
