Event description
Alzheimer Society of PEI is hosting our 9th Annual Alzheimer Awareness Conference on Thursday, January 28, 2021, virtually!

About this Event

We are honoured and thrilled to host our 9th Annual Alzheimer Awareness Conference on Thursday, January 28, 2021. This event is designed to provide meaningful learning opportunities for care partners, individuals with dementia, health care professionals and the general public.

Join us to hear from:

  • The Health Experts
  • A family care partner
  • Teepa Snow
  • And the team at the Alzheimer Society

Every year 25,000 Canadians are diagnosed with dementia. Presently, 2700 Islanders are living this journey. 1 in 3 people will be affected or know someone affected by Alzheimer’s disease. Dementia, however, is more than just numbers. That’s why this January the Alzheimer Society of PEI is focusing on #ConnectionsMatter.

We want to convert judgement into compassion and assumptions into understanding so that people with dementia feel support in our communities and our communities become dementia friendly!

Here’s what a few of our past participants had to say:

“Even though I forget, what will stay with me are the feelings from today- happiness and comfort.”

“One of the highlights of my year.”

“Excellent conference. Left with so much hope for better quality of life for our residents.”

Please note:

Our conference is virtual via Zoom. Please mute your mic and turn your camera off. We also suggest setting the view to presenter view for the best viewing experience.
