The New Brunswick Department of Social Development delivers “research”

The New Brunswick Department of Social Development finally delivered the research they claim proves the need for their segregated dementia policy. This research had been requested in early 2013 and DSD refused to supply it. McNair Manor ended up putting in a legal Right to Information request to which DSD had 30 days to supply the information. As was posted earlier DSD did not meet the 30 day deadline and instead extended the deadline another 30 days. In mid Decemeber the bankers box pictured below was finally delivered.

It includes 118 research documents on dementia. No mention whatsoever of pilot studies DSD has referred to several times in New Brunswick and on top of that, very few of the documents DSD used for their research even support segregation. The majority endorse an inclusive and normalized environment.

We are working on scanning and uploading all the documents to this site so you can read them for yourself. They will be available here:
