Hear from a recent Living With Dementia program participant :

I would like to express my appreciation to you for the delivery of such a high quality course to caregivers on “Living with Dementia”.

Your Thursday afternoon format provided us with the opportunity to think, question and challenge ourselves in the daily handling of the many issues which have suddenly been thrust upon us.

You really made us question many of our automatic responses with thoughtful and better methods. You allowed us to change and observe the changes in others. And the group has slowly coalescesced into a wonderful support group where sharing information, resources and friendship have become so helpful in navigating the health care system on a daily basis.

You certainly have contributed to the improved quality of life of the caregivers of our group.

Next Session: October 19, 2016 To December 21, 2016 every week from 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the JCC at Bloor and Spadina.
