Dementia and the Mobilities of Everyday Life in the Public Spaces

  • SSHRC IDG awarded 2023: People living with dementia are the fastest growing group of disabled people in the world. Currently at least 500,000 Canadians are diagnosed with dementia, a number expected to triple by the year 2050. Despite increased awareness of the need to support social inclusion and citizenship for people living with dementia and their families, we know relatively little about how they make their way through their worlds, find places of belonging and adjust over time to ‘stay in the life’ of their communities. Dementia shapes people’s mobility within their social and material environments and demands new adjustments, strategies, technologies, and routines in everyday life. This ethnographic study will begin a process of developing knowledge about how mobility – or the freedom to move through, and participate in, the world – is shaped and supported over time for people living with dementia and their families at home.
