Alzheimer's Awareness Month
Four Nova Scotians who live with dementia focus of new campaign
Let Us Help You Understand.
That’s the theme of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month 2018, launched on Jan. 8 in Nova Scotia.
The Society’s campaign features four Nova Scotians who live well with dementia.
Anne, Faye and Sandra are three remarkable women in early stage dementia who talk in a video series about their symptoms and the strategies they use to live well.
Darce Fardy also lives with dementia, and talks about it in a television commercial airing this month on CTV.
Besides the video series with Anne, Faye and Sandra, the Society has other new resources available for Alzheimer Awareness month:
Demonstration video - Tasks for Daily Living - Strategies for Caregivers: Transfers
A 12-minute demonstration video for families helping with a physical transfer at home.
Videos - Family Caregiver Education Series
A six-part education series for friends and family providing care and support to people recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia.
