Alzheimer Society set to host free workshop

The Alzheimer Society of B.C. is hosting a free tele-workshop this month to address how changes in the brain due to Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia often appear to family members as changes in the person’s behavior.

White Rock caregivers will learn how to understand behavior as a form of communication in the free workshop, to be offered June 23 starting at 7 p.m.

Understanding Behavior will explore strategies for determining what the person with dementia might be trying to communicate, finding ways to decrease the occurrence of concerning behaviors and how to respond in supportive ways.

The tele-workshop is designed for family caregivers, but is also open to health-care providers. It can be accessed via telephone, with an optional web component.

Pre-registration is required by June 20.

Visit www.alzheimerbc.org or phone toll-free 1-866-396-2433.
