Free dementia tele-workshop offered by Alzheimer Society

"Understanding Behaviour" takes place Wednesday, May 13

A free tele-workshop being offered by the Alzheimer Society of B.C. is designed to help families learn practical techniques for living with those who have Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.

“Understanding Behaviour” runs Wednesday, May 13 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.

The session will look at strategies to determine what the person with dementia might be trying to communicate, and to find ways to decrease the occurrence of behaviours that are of concern and to respond in supportive ways.

Tele-workshops are learning sessions designed for family caregivers, but are also open to health care providers. Participants can ask questions and share with others who are in similar situations.
