Learn to be a Dementia Friend presentation by the Alzheimer Society of British Columbia
September 29, 2022 @ 10:00 AM - 12:00 PMFREE
Join the Better at Home program and the Alzheimer Society of British Columbia for a special program.
With over half a million Canadians living with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, chances are you know someone living with dementia. As our population ages, this number will nearly double by 2030. However, we can better support those affected by dementia through understanding and knowledge. Learn to be a Dementia Friend in this presentation by the Alzheimer Society of British Columbia that will address:
- What dementia is, common myths
- How to recognize someone in the community who may be living with dementia and how to help.
- Learn communication strategies
- Know how to better support people living with dementia in their community
- Reduce stigma, raising awareness

Refreshments will be provided. We hope you can take this opportunity to join us on Thursday. Look forward to seeing you!
