Ontario is giving the province’s Alzheimer Society more than $750 thousand dollars.

The funding is aimed at improving training – for people who come into contact with those affected by dementia.

The money will go to the Finding Your Way program – which helps Ontarians with dementia stay safe and active – while helping to prevent the risk of wandering and going missing.

The new funding means training can be extended to first-responders and retirement home staff.

The Wynne government says nearly 250 thousand seniors in Ontario will be living with some form of dementia – by the year 2020.
