Coffee Questions helps caregivers connect

Session will offer support for those who care for people with dementia

A conversation over coffee can help Langley families living with dementia.

The non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C. brings a Dementia Coffee & Questions session to the community on Tuesday, Aug. 21.

The informal conversation about dementia can help caregivers with the challenges they face, offer reassurance, and provide a sense of connection.

Participants can meet others on a similar path, ask questions about dementia and caregiving, learn strategies to try, and hear about community resources.

They’ll also get some important reassurance that they are not alone on the dementia journey.

The session runs from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the City of Langley Library, 20399 Douglas Cres.

Pre-registration is required.

To register, call 604-449-5000 or email info.southfraser@alzheimerbc.org.

People who are living with dementia or have questions about the disease can call the First Link Dementia Helpline at 1-800-936-6033.

For more information on Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias, visit them online at www.alzheimerbc.org.
