WHO WE ARE
YouQuest is a wellness community where people with young onset dementia enjoy an active and rewarding quality of life.
To promote the health and well-being of individuals with young onset dementia and their families by ensuring access to recreation therapy, counselling, and peer support resources.
Motivated by the De Hogeweyk dementia village concept, and born
out of lived experience, YouQuest is a catalyst for change, reframing young onset dementia from limitations to possibilities. As a not-for-profit, YouQuest will seek funding to offset costs to families already under financial strain due to this diagnosis.
WHAT WE ARE BUILDING
YouQuest has invited 10 participants to this one day/week proof-of-concept pilot as the first step in improving quality of life for families living with young onset dementia.
In 2019-20, YouQuest will scale up to 20 participants per recreation location with additional service days to meet demand.
ABOUT OUR NAME
YouQuest reflects that our focus is on You and creating connections to what’s uniquely important in your life in the community. We meet You where you are in your Quest, walking in stride for understanding, belonging and purpose.
