Trillium Research Grant

It is with great pleasure and interest that we advise our readers that OCAPDD is in receipt of a grant from the Trillium Foundation of Ontario to research and develop a service/business plan that will help support our aging clients who are unfortunately prone to eventually suffer from dementia. Over the next decade or so
, our agency will have hundreds of clients that will potentially be coming down with the disease. Thus our agency must look to how best our clients can be served, many of whom have been with us for decades. Our traditional referral source in these circumstances, Long Term Care, may no longer have the capacity to support the many clients that may be up for referral not only from OCAPDD but from other DS agencies.

Our
Past-President Michael Elliott M.S.W. proposed and wrote the winning submission, and he has been contracted to undertake the project as outlined in the grant submission. Completion date is expected to be in the fall of 2012 when the report will be tabled with the OCAPDD Board for consideration in going forward.
