Support groups offer help with Alzheimer's

Delta residents can find help by attending the free information and support groups offered by the 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 Anthony Kupferschmidt, the society’s local support and education coordinator.

Participants learn about dementia, its progression and the impact it may have on individuals and families, as well as coping strategies and 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 Kupferschmidt at 604-238-7390 or anthonyk@alzheimerbc.org

The Alzheimer Society of B.C. exists to alleviate the personal and social consequences of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, to promote public awareness and to search for the causes and the cures.
