In the Guelph Wellington community, a collaborative community approach was created to support and guide individuals with dementia and their care partners away from and/or through the Judicial System. Safe Pathways aims to reduce the likelihood that persons with dementia will enter the judicial system due to behaviours that may cause harm and result in a criminal offence. Safe Pathways is funded by the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services in partnership with the Alzheimer Society Waterloo Wellington, Guelph Police Services, Ontario Provincial Police, Crown Attorney, Canadian Mental Health Association, Seniors at Risk, Victim Services and St. Joseph’s Health Centre, Guelph.
