Ontario Shores embraces the opportunity to raise awareness of mental illness, educate healthcare practitioners and nurture the next generation of mental health advocates.

Inside Ontario Shores
In this edition we look ahead to forensic geriatric and nursing education events being hosted by Ontario Shores in April as well as recognize the generous support of a community partner that will assist staff in working with patients who have mobility issues.
Forensic Geriatric Day

Ontario Shores is hosting a morning to bring greater awareness and understanding of forensic mental health. This event is a great opportunity for those who work with the seniors' population in the health, long-term care, social services and the justice sector as well as the general public.

We want to hear from you 

At the request of the Central East LHIN, the Alzheimer Society of Durham Region, Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences (Ontario Shores) and Seniors Care Network are working together to lead the development of a LHIN-wide strategy for dementia.

As part of this initiative, we want to collaborate with people like you to ensure we accurately capture the needs of our communities, create tangible actions that will make a meaningful difference and ensure this plan is sustainable over time.

If you a person with dementia, family member, caregiver or healthcare provider, we want to hear from you. Please take the time to answer a short survey and share your thoughts and experience.
