Call for Participants: CABHI
Morning Star Lodge, through Dr. Carrie Bourassa, is seeking File Hills Qu’Appelle Tribal Council (FHQTC) to assist us in the examination of the use of technology for Indigenous people living with dementia in the reserve communities of FHQTC community members. The aim is to review the application of technology and locally-developed language apps to aging Indigenous populations in Saskatchewan as it relates to quality of life, dementia, caregiver perspectives, Aging in Place, and the cultural significance of these topics.
Our objective is to examine the lived experience of Indigenous people living with dementia and their primary caregivers to understand the role of Indigenous culture, knowledge, spirituality and ceremony that are relevant to dementia, technology, language, and Aging in Place.
For this project, our participants must:
Be an Indigenous person living with dementia over the age of 18.
Have a primary caregiver that is preferably a community or family member.
Currently reside in a File Hills Qu’Appelle Tribal Council community or be originally from one of these communities.
