The Butterfly Project

Innovations in Dementia Care

In 2017, the Region of Peel partnered with Dementia Care Matters, a culture change organisation in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada and Australia to transform one house in our Malton Village Long Term Care Centre into a Butterfly home – the first of its kind in Ontario. By creating a more relaxed, home-like environment and building staff capacity to understand the needs of people living with dementia, people in the advanced stages of their experience of dementia have come 'alive' again. The Butterfly Care Model supports the Region of Peel's ability to deliver person-centred care to individuals living with complex needs by creating an emotional connection with people and building on their own unique lived experiences.
