How To Use This Site
The Champlain Dementia Network website has a variety of search functions to help you find the resources you need.
On the Top Navigation bar, a basic Search is available. Simply type in a keyword, select and Area from the pull-down menu, and click on the 'Search' button. If any matching results exist in our database, those service providers will be displayed. If the keyword search does not yield any results, the information does not exist in the database.
This tool allows you to expand the parameters of your search. As in the basic Search, simply type in a keyword, and select a region from the pull-down menu. Unlike the basic Search, you can also select from Categories and Sub Categories of Service Types by using the pull-down menus provided. When all four fields are set as needed, click on the ‘Search’ button to activate the tool.
You can use the Map utility to find the location of the service provider. Every instance of a provider is shown with a Champlain Dementia Network logo. You can click on “Hide Map” to remove it from the page if needed.
Every service provider shown on the Map is also displayed in the list. The name of the provider and contact information are displayed, and if you require more information about the provider, click on “Get More Details”. If an Email address is available, a “Send Email” icon is displayed. Clicking on this will allow you to Email that provider directly. If a website link is available, a “Visit Website” link is shown.
On the left side of every page (except for “Home”) are search tool variants that allow you to explore our online database if you are not getting results with the Search or Advanced Search.
The “Types of Services” Menu: This menu allows you to view types of services provided by each region. Simply click on a category, and then click on a region from the list that appears. The resulting display will show you your chosen category, plus how many results are available in your chosen area for each sub-category. To get a definition of each sub-category, simply click on the dictionary icon attached to the desired topic. To view the individual results of your search, click on the attached link.
The “Service Providers” Menu: Clicking on any letter shown will display the names of service providers beginning with the chosen letter.
The “Services by Region” Menu: Clicking on any region from this menu will display the Categories and Sub Categories of service type for your chosen region.
