A place to find a sense of hope. That, in a nutshell, is what Rossland residents can find by attending the free information and support groups offered by the non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C.
“It’s a place to exchange information, support and find friendship with others whose lives are affected by dementia,” says Linda Hoskin, the Society’s local support and education coordinator.
Participants learn about dementia, its progression and the impact it may have on individuals and families. They also learn practical coping strategies, encouraging caregivers to actively engage in protecting and maintaining their physical and emotional health.
The meetings offer ”the chance to regain some control in the face of a disease that cannot be controlled.”
For more information on meeting times and locations, contact Hoskin at 250-352-6788 or toll-free 1-877-452-6788, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
