The Alzheimer Society of B.C. is bringing its free Family Caregiver Series to Enderby Saturday and May  16.

“Without caregivers, people with dementia would have an increasingly poorer quality of life and would need residential care more quickly,” said Carly Gronlund, support and education co-ordinator.

The two-part workshop helps caregivers learn strategies to care for someone with dementia and to take care of their own health, to ensure they are prepared to continue to provide care for their family members.

“We provide practical techniques and strategies that caregivers can begin using immediately,” said Gronlund.

The workshop runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Enderby Senior’s Centre.

Pre-registration is required. For information and to register, contact Carly Gronlund at 1-800-634-3399 or cgronlund@alzheimerbc.org.
