Family Caregiver Education Series

Our Family Caregiver Education Series is for family members and care partners of persons recently diagnosed with dementia. Participants learn about the symptoms of dementia, coping strategies, future planning issues, and available community resources. The series is offered on an ongoing basis at locations across the province.
