In Support of YouQuest Calgary! Dementia doesn’t just affect the elderly. It also impacts thousands of men and women in their 40s, 50s and 60s.
Tough to diagnose, incurable and on a sharp increase, families are left vulnerable, isolated and disrupted by the gap in services and resources.
Canadians with young onset dementia and their families need access to relevant day-to-day services. Existing services are designed for seniors and do not meet the unique needs of people with young onset dementia. YouQuest provides practical support in a community setting.
YouQuest fills the gap in services by building community connections for people with young onset dementia to enjoy an active lifestyle.
YouQuest applies the therapeutic recreation model to address social, physical, cognitive, emotional and spiritual needs in a welcoming community setting.
Recreation therapists use best practices to assess, plan, implement, and evaluate activities and methods tailored to each individual. As recommended for young onset dementia, YouQuest delivers services that are “unique, flexible, affordable, tailored and promoting meaningful engagement.”
