The Primary Health Care Center is hosting a telehealth seminar Thursday presented by the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba. Their Program Director Norma Kirkby says it’s part of Telehealth Family Education for Those Experiencing Dementia and this session will be Understanding the Person. She explains when we understand more about the person and the things that they have done over their life course it will help us understand the actions and reactions that they have in their present circumstance. She says what it means is that when we know where a persons mind returns to and they live more in long term memory it helps us shift our conversations and understand what will touch them, reach them and give them quality of life in their present.
The session is being held at the Primary Health Care Center from 6:30 to 8 Thursday. To register online go to www.alzheimer.mb.ca, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 1-800-378-6699.
