The “Side by Side” Caregiver and Family Support Group is a community outreach initiative of the Mt. Lehman United Church, and offers support to the general public of unpaid caregivers of spouses, elders, children, blended and extended families, as well as friends and neighbours of people with significant health needs. We will meet the last Saturday of every month from September, 2017 to November, 2017, at 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. We will also offer coffee/tea and muffin and a lunch of soup and buns, as well as an interactive educational presentation on identified caregiver issues, and a safe place for caregivers to exchange information and meet others with similar experiences. We would like any caregivers to register their interest as space is limited. Please contact Paddy at 604-856-8114 or email… email@example.com…to register, or go to the website at www.sidebysidecare.org to get further information.
Our next session is November 25th, 2017.
Cyndi McLeod, the Support & Education Coordinator from the Alzheimer Society of B.C. will be the Guest Speaker.
Cyndi will present “The Senior Gems” – An interactive Guide to Improved Interaction and Appreciation of Individuals Living with Dementia. The information is based on Teepa Snow’s philosophy (Teepa is a renowned occupational therapist and dementia educator. )
If you are a new caregiver to the group, please register by contacting the Community Support Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
