The Primary Health Care Centre is hosting a telehealth seminar Thursday presented by the Alzheimer Society of Manitoba. Their Program Director Norma Kirkby says this session will be Healthy Smiles Oral Health for People with Dementia. She says they know that as people live with dementia often their skills and abilities change and they don’t understand the importance of having good oral care. She explains it’s important to provide this group of people with the right products that will help them keep their mouth clean and it’s also important to get them to the doctor and dentist periodically so that the mouth can be checked for other possible lesions etcetera that can occur.
The session will be held at Primary Health Care Centre from 6:30 to 8 on Thursday. To register online go to www.alzheimer.mb.ca email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 1-800-378-6699.
