OLDER AND WISER: Seniors health expo to explore dementia care
A diagnosis of dementia can come as a shock to the person with the disorder and also to their friends and family.
Dementia, as described by the Alzheimer Society of British Columbia, is an overall term for a set of symptoms that are caused by disorders affecting the brain.
Dementia affects all of us in some way. It affects our community, caregivers and people who live with some form of the disorder.
The first North Shore Seniors’ Health Expo is a great opportunity to explore the issues around dementia and how individuals and the community as a whole can address these issues. The expo will be held at the West Vancouver Community Centre and Seniors’ Activity Centre on Saturday, Sept. 10, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
