5th Annual Dementia Caregiver Appreciation Day

Date: Saturday, October 22, 2016.

We were once again honoured to have several speakers discuss different topics related to dementia such as an Overview of What's New in Dementia Research, Tips for Home Safety, Strategies for Managing Challenging Behaviours and an Overview of Financial Assistance Programs. Our care partners who agreed to present their experiences were once again of vital importance to the success of our event because all the participants learned directly from the experts themselves, the direct care partners of people with dementia.  We were honoured to have a Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher end the day with lots of laughter. If you were unable to make it, please see our video below. We hope you are able to join us for our next event. Stay tuned for more information!
