Community Partner Programs

Discover. Explore. Get Involved. is an initiative that involves partnering with community organizations. Through these partnerships, people with dementia have opportunities to get out and participate in engaging and stimulating activities with their family members and friends. Organizations open their doors to provide programs offering social, creative, educational and active living components.

One of the goals is to encourage organizations to provide accessible and supportive environments for people with dementia and their care partners. These are places in which everyone is included and respected.

Tales Along the Trail

Enjoy Manitoba’s spring awakening! Tales Along the Trail is for people living with dementia and their care partners who are looking for a safe but exciting way to encounter the natural world. Watch as snowy landscapes turn lush green, hear the songs of migrating birds and smell the first flowers in the forest. An experienced naturalist will guide the group along FortWhyte’s gentle pathways, pointing out all spring has to offer and encouraging everyone to use their senses to explore.

Each session will include a relaxing walk through the woods, with stops focusing on all of our senses. Participants will then have a chance to share thoughts, stories, and a snack around a crackling fire or cozy indoor space. In stormy weather, we bring nature indoors.
