Have you or someone you care for beenrecently diagnosed with dementia?  


This webinar series provides a foundational understanding of dementia and practical ways to adapt to become more resilient.  Guidance and resources on key topics including emotional support, health and wellness, social and meaningful engagement, and planning will be explored over the 6 weeks. Participants living with dementia will leave with more resources to live well, and spouses/family members will leave more prepared and confident in their new care partnering roles.

Sessions build upon one another but registration is available at any point during the series.
