Tele-workshop helps C.R. families discuss dementia with children

Are you having difficulty talking about dementia with the children and teens in your family?

Are you having difficulty talking about dementia with the children and teens in your family?

Wondering how much you should say?

The non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C. can help.

Campbell River residents can sign up for a free tele-workshop for family caregivers that explains what children and teens 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 at 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.

Participants also have a chance to learn and to share with others who are in similar situations.

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