Have you or someone you care for been recently diagnosed with dementia? This FREE in-person or on-line series provides a foundational understanding of dementia and practical ways to adapt to become more resilient.  Guidance and resources on key topics will be explored over the 6 weeks including: 
  • Emotional support 
  • Health and wellness
  • Social and meaningful engagement
  • Planning for Living Well with Dementia 
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.  Education sessions build upon one another however; you may join at any time during the series.
