North East Dementia Strategy - Health Service Providers

North East Dementia Strategy Survey

Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey.

The NE LHIN is developing a plan to implement the Provincial Dementia Strategy and to improve the lives of people living with the disease and their families over the next three years.

Four in-person service provider focus groups have been facilitated at the hubs in four of the sub-regions: North Bay, Sudbury, Sault Ste. Marie, and Timmins. The contribution has been fantastic with over 100 service providers participating. With this survey, we’d like to make sure to extend the opportunity to contribute to those who were unable to attend the focus groups, especially those servicing the more rural and remote regions of the NE LHIN.

We will be collecting detailed information regarding the service delivery by primary care groups/care communities (which are the sub-geographies within each Sub-Region of the LHIN) to inform our current state assessment and gap analysis of services for dementia care across the LHIN.

When assessing the current state and planning for the future, we plan to follow a ‘patient journey’ that includes the caregiver, as illustrated below:
