Hosted by The Ontario Caregiver Organization & Ontario Health (Quality)
In partnership with Ontario Health, this webinar provides an overview of delirium and how family
members and caregivers can support people with or at risk for delirium. You will learn how to help
prevent delirium, how to recognize the signs and symptoms of delirium, and ways to support your
family member’s care. We will hear from a clinician and people with lived experience, and examine
various useful tools and resources for caregivers. The Ontario Caregiver Organization will moderate a
question-and-answer session at the end of the webinar.
