The Alzheimer Society of B.C. is making it easier for residents of Fort St. James to learn about dementia.

Families and caregivers can participate in a free videoconference, Understanding Dementia, offered by the non-profit Society on Wednesday, June 13.

“Participants will learn how dementia affects the brain, communication, and behaviour across the progression of the disease,“ explains Leanne Jones, the Society’s Support and Education Coordinator for Fort St. James and the Northern Interior.

“Caregivers will learn what to expect throughout the dementia journey.“

The videoconference, aired live from Prince George, will also outline services provided by the Society.

It runs from 1 to 4 p.m. Space is very limited so pre-registration is required. For location and to register, contact Jones toll-free at 1-866-564-7533 or e-mail ljones@alzheimerbc.org. For more information on Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, visit www.alzheimerbc.org
