Welcome to the Dementia Education Program

The McGill Dementia Education Program responds to the need to support care partners (spouse, parent, child, sibling or friend) looking after a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia-related illnesses. Our multidisciplinary team creates educational tools and innovative platforms to offer the training and resources care partners need.
