The Me in Dementia Conference comes to Surrey May 28, 2015

On average, one in 11 Canadians over the age of 65 lives with dementia – and that means their families and friends live with its impact too.

With that in mind, the Alzheimer Society of B.C.is bringing a conference “ME in Dementia: Increasing Understanding Along the Dementia Journey,” to the South Fraser area (Surrey, Delta, White Rock, Langley, Cloverdale, Abbotsford, Mission and Chilliwack)  on Thursday, May 28.

Presentations during the day include:
  • Heads Up for a Healthier Brain: Strategies for improving and maintaining the health of your mind, body and spirit.
  • Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia: Understanding Alzheimer’s disease and dementia and how the brain and behaviour are affected.
  • Communication and Behaviour Along the Dementia Journey: Exploring ways to communicate with the person with dementia and understand how behaviour forms part of communication.
  • Personal Planning: Options for planning ahead for the time when the person with dementia can no longer manage his or her affairs.
  • Research:  A review of the exciting scientific progress being made in Alzheimer's disease research and its potential future clinical directions.
The conference runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Comfort Inn & Suites, 8255 166 Street, Surrey. Seating is limited so pre-registration is required by Thursday May 21.

Call toll-free 1-855-742-4803 to pre-register. Cost is $20 ($30 for late registration), lunch included.
