The Alzheimer Society of B.C. and Fairchild Media Group are proud to announce that the first-ever Telethon for Alzheimer’s raised over $165,000 to help provide support and education for people living with dementia and their caregivers in the Chinese community.
On November 25, we will be hosting the first of our new bi-annual 'Lived experience' webinar series. Hear from two members of the Society's Leadership Group of People Living with Dementia, Myrna Norman and Craig Burns, as they share their experiences of what it is like living with dementia during the holiday season.
Dr. Lili Liu and her research team from the University of Waterloo is hosting an online national forum to discuss community alert systems for vulnerable Canadians at risk of going missing, in partnership with AGE-WELL NCE, the Alzheimer Society of B.C., the Alzheimer Society of Ontario, Dementia Advocacy Canada, the Calgary Coordinated Response to Missing Seniors and several persons with lived experience of dementia.
Family caregivers are more than visitors; they are an important part of the care team. In our upcoming webinar, the Alzheimer Society of B.C. and Family Caregivers of BC will provide caregivers with tools and resources to enhance their knowledge, skills and confidence to care in our current changing environment.
Dementia doesn’t stop and neither do we. We are currently recruiting for volunteer committee positions for the IG Wealth Management Walk for Alzheimer’s, taking place in Spring of 2021.
