Conference to focus on caregivers

  • Print

The Alzheimer Society of Manitoba (ASM) will soon be honouring its caregivers.

The society will be hosting the third annual Care4U family conference Nov. 2 at the Canadian Mennonite University, located at 500 Shaftesbury Blvd.

The conference will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and will involve plenty of learning opportunities for friends and family caring for those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

"Caregiving can be extremely challenging, both physically and emotionally. By remembering to take time to care for their own well-being, caregivers are able to maintain quality of life for themselves and their loved ones," said Wendy Schettler, CEO of the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba, in a release.

There will be seminars and a "Care for the Caregiver" health fair aimed at reminding caregivers to remember their own well-being.

Speakers include Dr. Tiffany Chow, a senior clinician-scientist at the Rotman Research Institute, Tara Maltman-Just, a clinical consultant pharmacist and Founder of Vitality Integrative Medicine in Winnipeg, Jennifer Licardo, the education co-ordinator at the ASM, and many more.

Registration for the event is $40 with lunch included. For more information and to register, visit http://alzheimer.mb.ca/care4u2013/
