Providing dementia resources for caregivers and clinicians
Interior Health’s Phased Dementia Pathway was created to identify, inform and implement “promising practices” (evidence-informed practice) aimed at addressing areas of concern and need as identified by persons with dementia, their caregivers and health care professionals.
The Phased Dementia Pathway helps in understanding dementia and describes the unique physical, mental, emotional, and social needs of clients and caregivers across the spectrum of cognitive change from early recognition of changes to early diagnosis to the end-of-life.
What is the purpose of the Phased Pathway?
The purpose of the IH Phased Dementia Pathway is to provide easy access to evidence informed clinical practice recommendations and clinical support tools that will assist direct care interdisciplinary staff and their managers in the planning and delivery of dementia care. Learn more about what the phased pathway is.

How does the Pathway relate to medical guidelines?
The Phased Pathway describes interdisciplinary recommendations that are designed to be complementary and supportive to the current medical guidelines.
