Caring for people with dementia

Whether you are caring for a family member full-time, part-time, or working in the field of dementia care, it’s important to put effective care strategies into practice for the benefit of both you and the person living with dementia.

The Alzheimer Society of Calgary is a proud proponent and exclusive licensee of the Best Friends Approach™ in Alberta. We advocate for positive care strategies that increase the confidence and abilities of the caregiver in addition to those of the person living with dementia. The goal is to focus on the strengths and capabilities that remain and to align care strategies with the person’s life story. This forms a meaningful experience for the person living with dementia and helps set the foundation for a strong connection and genuine relationship.
