Event description

Description

Every year, 25,000 Canadians are diagnosed with dementia. Presently, 2,537 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 launch 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.

As our main event, we will be hosting renowned dementia educator Teepa Snow for our 6th Annual Alzheimer Awareness Conference. Teepa Snow is a strong advocate for people living with dementia. She teaches that: "Life with dementia can be lived fully." To learn more about Teepa visit teepasnow.com or view a teaser video here.

With Teepa's leadership, we are happy to offer three exciting educational opportunities as part of our Annual January Awareness Conference! These education opportunities will fill up fast!
