To understand interactions between care recipients and care providers, we conducted semi-structured interviews with 20 staff members (11 dementia service staff from ASBC and the health authority, and 9 immigrant-serving staff working with Punjabi or Korean communities), and with 15 dyads of persons with dementia (PWD) and their informal care partners (10 Punjabi; 5 Korean), as well as 6 focus groups, one each with older men, older women, and working age men and women in each of the Punjabi and Korean communities.
The regional health authority and Alzheimer Society chapter in British Columbia have valuable resources on dementia and other health and social supports, but they do not know how to adapt their policy and practice tools to address the complex problems of access for immigrant older adults and their families. Staff in immigrant-serving agencies typically understand the multiple barriers and facilitators to access for these populations and are better positioned to gain the trust of immigrant older adults.
Presenters: Mark Cabaj & Galen MacLusky
In this webinar, Mark Cabaj and Galen MacLusky will introduce the canvas, walk through important things to consider when planning systems change, and show how the canvas can be applied to a real-world scenario. We’re excited to be releasing this tool and hope you will join us not only to learn what we have uncovered, but also to help us shape this tool and make it work for you.
Presenter: Claire Ludwig

Presenter: Barb Sutcliffe
This webinar is being offered in collaboration with the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging.
-Understand what culture change is and why it’s vital to resident, family and team member quality of life.
-Learn about the Working Together to Put Living First guidebook and other resources that are available to support culture change in your long-term care home.
-Leave with practical strategies and resources to start making change.
In this toolkit, we’ve packaged together all the tools, resources, reports and learnings we’ve put out along the way, in an effort to help others learn from our experience with co-design and caregivers. We will keep this page updated as our work, and learnings, progress.
Regardless of where your organization is in terms of caregiver involvement – building the case, starting the conversation, ready to implement or evaluating the impact – we’re confident there’s something in this toolkit to help you out.
