White Rock forum offers caregiver support

The Alzheimer Society of B.C. is providing a forum in White Rock for caregivers looking after someone with dementia.

The Alzheimer Society of B.C. is providing a forum in White Rock for sharing tips and strategies for caregivers looking after someone with dementia.

The free support and information group serves as a place to exchange information and gain friendship to help decrease the feelings of isolation and loneliness.

“One of the most important things you can do to support someone with dementia is to take care of yourself,” said Avalon Tournier, the society’s regional support and education co-ordinator.

Some self-care tips include setting realistic expectations, asking for help when needed, talking to people who listen and making regular appointments with a doctor.

To find out more information about the group, as well as times and locations, call 604-541-0606 or email Tournier at atournier@alzheimerbc.org
