The Bitove Wellness Academy is a first of its kind in Canada! The Academy is for persons living with mild to moderate dementia, as well as, for their families and care partners. The idea of the Academy as a place of active learning is central to the philosophy of the Dotsa Bitove Wellness Academy. We provide and encourage opportunities for personal growth and discovery through creative activities, active and continuous learning, artistic expression, lively discussion, inter-generational exploration, exercise and enjoyment. The Program is designed to accommodate simultaneously-running activities including art and art history, drama, yoga, creative writing, dance and music. Each person is supported to choose activities they find most meaningful and most engaging. Our philosophy is based on learning, engagement, creativity and inter-generational programming to connect generations in learning. Bitove participants are inspired and supported to be their personal best.
