  • Sherry Dupuis, Professor, Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies, Partnerships in Dementia Care Alliance, University of Waterloo


Actions of persons living with dementia continue to be framed within biomedical and institutional models and understood only as a direct result of disease processes and, in the context of dementia, changes in the brain. These approaches have profound and harmful implications for persons living with dementia as they come to be defined only by their “behavours” and labeled in stigmatizing ways such as “challenging” and “troublemakers”. In this session we will critically reflect on the implications of dominant language used and understandings of dementia and explore what it might mean for persons with dementia and care partners if we understood the actions and personal expressions of persons living with dementia in the context of multiple relationships.

We ask that you only register for this event if you are certain you can attend, we also encourage participants joining from the same location or organization to share a computer, as we have limited space. Thank you.
