Alzheimer Society meetings offer sense of hope

Alzheimer Society of B.C. offering free information and support groups

A sense of hope.

That, in a nutshell, is what White Rock residents can find by attending the free information and support groups offered by the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

“It’s a place to exchange information, support and find friendship with others whose lives are affected by dementia,” Avalon Tournier, the society’s local support and education co-ordinator, said in a release.

Participants learn about dementia, its progression and the impact it may have on individuals and families.

They also learn practical coping strategies, encouraging caregivers to actively engage in protecting and maintaining their physical and emotional health.

The meetings offer “the chance to regain some control in the face of a disease that cannot be controlled.”
