Learn about ACP as you follow the interactive story of Yarsdel presented in a scrolling, comic-book style choose-your-own adventure game. Vitalogue was released in March 2018 as a collaboration between St. Joseph's Health Care Centre, CMHA and Hospice of Waterloo Region.

Dementia and Sexuality

Within each case study, you will learn about how dementia can impact the ways in which people living with dementia communicate their unmet needs, including those pertaining to sexuality. Myths and stereotypes about sexuality and dementia and the way these perceptions shape our interactions will be explored alongside practical strategies to support people living with dementia.

Falls

Falls are a common and serious problem for seniors, and are often a symptom of other issues. In this module you will review ways to predict and prevent falls, and have practice identifying extrinsic and intrinsic risk factors. Finally, you will practice fall prevention by linking people with specific risk factors to the appropriate community partner.
