The Alzheimer Society of B.C. is hosting a free tele-workshop on Dec. 15 to help White Rock families discuss dementia with children.
The tele-workshops are learning sessions designed for family caregivers, but are also open to health care providers, who may have difficulty talking about dementia with children and teens.
The workshop explains what youth need to know to better understand dementia, and offers suggestions on how to help interact with the person.
Tele-workshops can be accessed via telephone with an optional web component. The alternative method was created to provide opportunities for those who cannot attend in-person workshops.
The workshop begins at 7 p.m. and pre-registration is required by Dec. 8.
