Caring for a family member with dementia and looking for creative ways to engage him/her in meaningful activities?
Williams Lake families can get some helpful tips during a free tele-workshop on Thursday, Aug. 25 at 7 p.m.
“Activities to Do with the Person with Dementia” will explain the goals and benefits of meaningful activities, give suggestions for appropriate activities, and show how to maximize the enjoyment for you and the person.
Tele-workshops are learning sessions designed for family caregivers, but also open to health care providers. They can be accessed via telephone, with an optional web component, recognizing that many caregivers are unable to attend in-person workshops.
Participants also have a chance to learn and to share with others who are in similar situations.
