A conversation over coffee can offer help and understanding to Vernon families confronted by dementia.
The non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C. brings a dementia coffee and questions session to the community on May 21.
The session runs from 10 a.m. to noon at The People Place, 3402 27th Ave.
It’s an informal conversation about dementia that can help caregivers.
“You’ll find out what others have experienced along the dementia journey,” said Sherry Wezner, the society’s support and education co-ordinator for the North and Central Okanagan.
“You’ll have a better understanding of dementia, some new strategies to try, knowledge about community resources and reassurance that you are not alone in your journey as a caregiver.”
Pre-registration is required by contacting the regional Alzheimer Resource Centre at 250-860-0305 (toll-free 1-800-634-3399) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are living with dementia or have questions about the disease, visit www.alzheimerbc.org and call the dementia helpline at 1-800-936-6033.
