Let's talk about dementia in Canada
In Dementia Talks! Canada, a partnership between the Alzheimer Society of Canada and Brain Canada, you can learn more about dementia in Canada through a collection of topic-focused conversations.
In each digital discussion featured in this webinar series, you'll get to know more about a particular issue. At each edition of Dementia Talks! Canada you'll find out about:
- What the latest research is saying about a topic
- What resources and supports are available to help you or someone you know
- How people living with dementia, their care partners and their families are being affected by the topic – including their tips and insights for how to manage and live well
Each speaker is an expert on dementia in their own way – whether they are conducting dementia research, providing support for people affected by dementia or have direct lived experience as a person living with dementia, care partner or family member.
Every edition of Dementia Talks! Canada is free to attend. And every talk also has French-language interpretation available. A public question and answer period will also take place at the end of each session.
