Alzheimer Helpline

FIRST LINK is your link to dementia support.

Caroline Herbert explained to the Auxiliary about the ways Alzheimer Society BC can help caregivers, family, and the patient.  She is creating a phoneline for everyone to call to learn what to do.  Volunteers are currently being trained.  The Victoria number for the Society is 250-382-2052.

Herbert spoke about the difficulties for the person, although people with dementia usually don't realize it, so that complicates it for everyone.  While there is no cure, she explained that there many techniques to handle it.
