Long distance caregiving explored in White Rock workshop

Participants will examine ways to improve long-distance care and hear experiences of other caregivers.

A workshop aiming to help caregivers who live away from the person they’re caring for is coming to White Rock this month.

The Alzheimer Society of B.C. is presenting the free session on long-distance caregiving Tuesday, July 26, as part of its Dementia Dialogues series.

Participants will be invited to discuss the challenges of long-distance caregiving, examine ways to improve services and hear experiences of other caregivers.

Dementia Dialogues offers family caregivers a chance to connect with and learn from one another about dementia and caregiving. Each informal session offers a chance to explore a different caregiving topic and participate in a guided discussion.

The Dementia Dialogues: Long Distance Caregiving workshop is 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Centre for Active Living, 1475 Anderson St.

Participants are asked to pre-register by calling 604-449-5000 or e-mailing info.southfraser@alzheimerbc.org
