Preparing to transfer a family member with dementia to residential care can be an emotional journey for Victoria families.
The non-profit Alzheimer Society of B.C. aims to make the process a bit easier, with a free seminar on Thursday, June 3.
Preparation for Transfer to Residential Care will provide information and strategies to help with the transition.
"Informed and well-prepared consumers can assess and ultimately improve the quality of care being offered to people with dementia," says Christin Hillary, the Society's Greater Victoria support and education coordinator.
The seminar runs June 3 from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at James Bay Community Project's meeting room at 547 Michigan St.
