Dementia workshops offered by phone

Cloverdalians with family or friends living with dementia can take advantage of upcoming workshops offered by phone through the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

The first tele-workshop, How to Speak Up About Dementia and Make Changes to the System, is April 7, at 7 p.m. Speakers Barbara Lindsay and Rebecca Morris will provide the tools laypeople need to advocate for a dementia strategy in B.C., where Alzheimer disease and dementia are rapidly-rising health issues.

How to Support A Friend Who Has Dementia or is a Caregiver is presented Wednesday, April 23 at 2 p.m. Pick up ideas on communicating with a person with dementia, and how you might offer support or assistance to those family members or caregivers of a person with dementia.
