Learning About Dementia Through Experiential Learning

Monday, March 25, 2019

The Thrive Group and MCE teamed up with two Mohawk College instructional doctorates, Dr. Anne-Marie DePape and Dr. Krissy Doyle-Thomas, to deliver a session on ‘Learning About Dementia Through Experiential Learning’. Two sessions were developed; one for healthcare professionals in the Mississauga area and another for healthcare professionals (Hamilton session below). 

The session was divided into two-parts; a review of the aging process through experiential learning using an aging simulation; and the origins, cause, and types, of Dementia and the impact Dementia has on families and caregivers.
