Tele-workshop on dementia

Kelowna residents can sign up for a free tele-workshop offered by the Alzheimer Society of B.C. for family caregivers that explains what children and teenagers need to know to better understand dementia, and offers suggestions on how to help them interact with the person.

Children, Teens and Dementia runs on Thursday, Dec. 15, 7 p.m. Pre-registration is required by Dec. 8. Visit www.alzheimerbc.org or phone toll-free 1-866-396-2433 to register.

Tele-workshops are learning sessions designed for family caregivers, but also open to health care providers. They can be accessed via telephone, with an optional web component, recognizing that many caregivers are unable to attend in-person workshops.

For more information on Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, visit the Alzheimver Society of B.C. website at www.alzheimerbc.org.
