Tele-workshop equips families with tools

Dementia
Comments

Changes in communication and behaviour are very common in people living with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias.

Area families can learn practical techniques for living with those changes during a free tele-workshop offered by the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C.

Understanding behaviour runs on Thursday, Dec. 5 and offers practical strategies that family caregivers can use when dealing with the challenges of supporting a person with dementia at home.

It starts at 7 p.m. Visit www.alzheimerbc.org or call toll-free 1-866-994-7745, and enter pass code 1122333, when prompted.

Tele-workshops are learning sessions designed for family caregivers, but are also open to health-care providers. Recognizing that many caregivers are unable to attend in-person workshops, the sessions can be accessed via telephone, with an optional computer component that allows you to watch the video presentation online. At the end of the tele-workshop, participants have an opportunity to ask questions and share with others who are in similar situations.

For more information on Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, which affect one in 11 Canadians over the age of 65, visit the Society website at www.alzheimerbc.org.
