Dementia Education Workshops for Family Caregivers

Receiving a diagnosis of dementia can prove to be a difficult reality for individuals and family members. The key to navigating this journey is to find acceptance and avoid denial, become as educated as possible about the disease, understand how it will progress, make health care plans for the future, ensure a safe home environment and provide family caregivers with as much support as possible in order to avoid caregiver burnout. Caregiver Crosswalk Inc. is proud to work in collaboration with McGill University’s Faculty of Medicine’s Steinberg Centre for Simulation and Interactive Learning, McGill Division of Geriatric Medicine, McGill University Research Centre for Studies in Aging, as well as McGill School of Physical and Occupational Therapy to offer Dementia Education Workshops for Family Caregivers.
