The Alzheimer Society of B.C. holds a free workshop in Abbotsford on Tuesday, Sept. 15 for caregivers.

The session, called Accessing Services, runs from 1 to 3 p.m. at Garden Park Tower, 2825 Clearbrook Rd.

The workshop is designed for local residents who are supporting a person with dementia. It reviews strategies for accessing support through a variety of sources in the community – from family and friends to the health care system.

The session also explores challenges that can arise when making the decision to access services and support, and offers strategies for working with service providers and acting as an advocate.
