ALZHEIMER’S CAFE AND DEMENTIA CARE
From April 3-17, 2018, CAREY welcomes Dr. Gemma Jones for a multi-day, multi-site, series of workshops, seminars, and information sessions, on Alzheimer’s disease and dementia care, with the goal of establishing Alzheimer Cafés in Greater Vancouver and beyond. See their website for details and registration.
The CRPD hosts a monthly get together for graduate students and post-doctoral researchers to explore ideas and raise new questions about aging and dementia. These are lively wide-ranging conversations about what can be done through research, practice, and community partnerships to support personhood and promote social citizenship. The Exchange is held at the CRPD (Room 322, 2080 West Mall) on the last Friday of every month from 4-5:30 pm.
