This workshop will be given in English.
Please bring your lunch.
McGill University’s Steinberg Centre for Simulation and Interactive Learning and the RUIS McGill Centre of Excellence on Longevity are working in collaboration with Alzheimer’s Care Consultant and Facilitator Claire Webster, and with Dr. Serge Gauthier, Director of the Alzheimer Disease Research Unit at the McGill University Research Centre for Studies in Aging (MCSA), to offer a community workshop which aims to educate and support caregivers who are looking after a family member with Alzheimer's disease or a dementia-related illness.
This workshop will:
- focus on the most important elements that caregivers need to know regarding dementia and its associated behavioural and psychological symptoms;
- help family members prepare themselves for the journey of caring for someone who has the disease, including best practices for ensuring their own well-being as caregivers;
- simulate a real-life scenario to educate caregivers on how to create a safe home environment.
Through education and empowerment, this workshop will help support caregivers and provide them with the necessary resources to turn to in the community for support.
