Call to Action

Proposal to support, engage and value dementia caregivers and people living
with dementia
Student Advocates for Public Health call for enhanced community engagement
opportunities for caregivers and people living with dementia.
This can be achieved through:
1. Recognition of the rights of caregivers and people living with dementia to remain active
and valuable members of their communities, protected under a provincial caregivers
recognition act
2. By 2020, every municipality in Alberta will implement a fully funded dementia-friendly
transportation service that is accessible to all
3. By 2020, every municipality in Alberta will provide complete funding for dementia
caregiver support groups available in their communities
