Dementia Supports in Rural Saskatchewan focuses on improving the public’s awareness of the stigma and social isolation experienced by people with dementia and their care partners.

Collaborating Organizations are working to improve support for customers, clients, and employees living with dementia and their care partners residing in Yorkton and surrounding areas.


Selected organizations from different sectors are working collectively to build a Collective Impact approach based on their shared vision to enhance the social inclusion of older adults with dementia and their care partners living in small cities and rural communities in Saskatchewan.

Individual, community, and organizational level services are essential to support those with dementia and their care partners in their own communities so that they can successfully age in place.
