Workshop: Creating Dementia-Friendly Communities

We are pleased to welcome the Alzheimer Society of B.C. to deliver a free community workshop on October 2nd on how we can be part of creating a more dementia-friendly community.

The workshop, to be given by Rebecca Morris, Alzheimer Society of B.C. Advocacy Analyst, will focus on how to best support people living with dementia in our community. It will cover topics such as:

  • understanding the signs and symptoms
  • addressing misconceptions
  • practical communication tips
  • essential information on wandering behaviour

The workshop will give you new ideas and skills for when you are communicating with people living with dementia in your community. We can all play a role in making our community a great place to live for people with dementia!

We invite all interested community members to attend this free workshop and join us in our ongoing efforts to create communities which are friendlier to those living with dementia.

**Please note, space for the workshop is limited to 30 seats and everyone interested in attending must RSVP by email, to andrew.weaver.mla@leg.bc.ca, or by phone, to (250) 472-8528**
