Background on Our Dementia Journey Journal

  • Our Dementia Journey Journal (ODJJ) is an interactive resource that enables sustainable relationship-building between caregivers and care providers of persons living with dementia through the sharing of meaningful and relevant information pertaining to physical, functional and social care and support. It also helps caregivers and care providers (re)negotiate their respective roles as the circle and/or setting of care changes along the dementia journey and optimize their respective knowledge of and about the persons living with dementia. The evidence-based, validated ODJJ is available on analog, digital and mobile platforms and is ready for scaled implementation in English, and will be available in French, Hindi, and Punjabi.

Spreading and scaling Our Dementia Journey Journal

  • The primary populations who will be offered use of Our Dementia Journey Journal in this project are the caregivers and care providers of persons living with dementia in congregate and/or community-based long-term care homes, with an additional specific focus on First Nations and South Asian communities from a linguistic and cultural diversity perspective. In the project, we will be undertaking work to engage other communities who believe they would benefit from the ODJJ and incorporate their input and guidance to adapt the ODJJ – with a view to scale and spread activities after federal funding ceases.
  • We will be starting with long-term care homes in Alberta, First Nations communities, and South Asian communities in Ontario. We will then expand availability and use of the ODJJ in long-term care homes and South Asian communities in other provinces, and in additional First Nations communities.
  • An important part of the funded project will be for evaluation. The intervention research methodology we will use is the CFIR constructs, adapted to include digital health solutions (Damschroder et al, 2009; Damschroder et al., 2022), applied using a Sex and Gender Based Analysis Plus (SGBA+) lens. To measure use and impact of ODJJ, a variety of data collection tools will be used, including journaling, surveys, focus groups, interviews. The evaluation will lead to an understanding of the differences in implementation and uptake in the different community types, in order to be able to tailor the implementation, and to develop a future marketing plan and a long-term sustainability plan for different communities.


  • A wide range of collaborators have committed to supporting the project implementation, evaluation and planning for future marketing and sustainability. The project will also be supported by and participate in the Canadian Dementia Learning and Resource Network.
