Many caregivers believe their family member would not receive the same level of care or attention if they weren’t there. That’s why OCO is here to support caregivers with resources to care for their family member, friend or neighbour.

Alzheimer Society of Ontario

See Pain More Clearly – Partnerships to improve pain assessment & management in people with dementia

Informal caregivers, patients, and family members can contribute to improving this situation by advocating for more frequent assessment of pain and improved staff education on how to evaluate pain in dementia. Informal caregivers and family members can also help in the assessment of pain by completing validated checklists of pain behaviours under the guidance of health professionals.
