Description

Register now for our 7th Annual Alzheimer Awareness Conference!

THEME: Be the Change: Let’s Talk Memory

Date: January 24, 2019 Storm date: January 31, 2019
Location: Murchison Center, Charlottetown
Time: 8:30am-3:00pm

Every year, 25,000 Canadians are diagnosed with dementia. Presently, 2,570 Islanders are living this journey. 1 in 3 people will be affected or know someone affected by Alzheimer’s Disease. But dementia is more than just numbers. That’s why this January the Alzheimer Society of PEI is joining our colleagues across Canada to build on a national awareness campaign to challenge public perceptions of what it means to live with dementia. We want to convert judgment into compassion and assumptions into understanding so that people with dementia feel supported in our communities.

We are excited to host our 7th Annual Alzheimer Awareness Conference on Thursday, January 24, 2019. This event is designed to provide meaningful learning opportunities for caregivers, individuals living with dementia, health care professionals and the general public.

Join us to hear from:

  • Person(s) living with dementia
  • Care partners providing help for today
  • Health care professionals making a difference
  • Latest Dementia Care Training graduates
  • Researchers bringing hope for the future, And more!

Here’s what a few of our past participants had to say:
“Great day with a little bit of something for everyone.”
“Excellent conference. Left with so much hope for better quality of life for our residents.”
“I would not miss it next year. Well organized and worthwhile day.”
“We’ve been coming to these events for many years. I have dementia and we are very thankful for the info we have received. How very fortunate we are here on PEI”
