Webinars are being offered to those caring for loved ones with dementia
The Alzheimer Society of B.C. is offering two free webinars this month to increase awareness and provide strategies to help local caregivers and people living with dementia prepare for the holidays during COVID-19.
This year’s holiday gatherings will undoubtedly look and feel different, and that uncertainty can add challenges for people living with dementia, caregivers, family members and friends.
In the first of the two webinars, caregivers will learn how to adapt their plans to minimize stress during the holiday season. This one-hour session will be held on Wednesday, November 18, at 2 p.m. and will provide strategies on several topics, including gift-giving and visiting in care.
In the second session, two people living with dementia will share the impact of COVID-19 on their preparations for this holiday season. The event is scheduled for Wednesday, November 25, at 2 p.m.
