Open to the public

Melville Community Works Building
Join our Dementia Community Coordinator in Melville for a public presentation of our Warning Signs presentation.

*No registration required

Dementia can cause changes in abilities, behaviour, and communication that affect an individual’s daily life. Becoming aware of these changes – known as the ABC’s of Dementia – can increase our ability to access support and early diagnosis, should we notice these signs in ourselves or others we care about.

This presentation is offered as part of the Dementia Supports in Rural Saskatchewan project. Dementia Supports in Rural Saskatchewan is led by the Saskatchewan Population Health and Evaluation Research Unit (SPHERU) at the University of Regina and is funded by the Government of Canada.
