One of the best ways Campbell River family caregivers can prepare for the journey with dementia is by learning about the disease and what to expect throughout the progression.

One of the best ways Campbell River family caregivers can prepare for the journey with dementia is by learning about the disease and what to expect throughout the progression.

That information will be available in a free tele-workshop offered on Thursday, March 24 by the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C.

Guest Dr. Lynn Beattie, an expert in dementia, will explain the kinds of symptoms that are likely to arise, and explore a variety of different approaches for meeting the challenges associated with the disease.

Pre-registration for the 7 p.m. tele-workshop is required. Visit www.alzheimerbc.org or phone toll-free 1-866-396-2433.

Tele-workshops are learning sessions designed for family caregivers, but also open to health care providers. They can be accessed via telephone or on the web, 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.
