Have you or someone you care for been recently diagnosed with dementia?  

The First Steps 6 week online education series provides a foundational understanding of dementia and practical ways to adapt as a person living with Dementia and as a care partner supporting them. 

Key topics include:

  • Emotional support 
  • Health and wellness
  • Social and meaningful engagement
  • Planning for Living Well with Dementia 

Participants living with dementia will leave with resources to adapt and carepartners will be more prepared and confident in their ability to support. Education sessions build upon one another however; you may join at any time during the series.
