Montreal, October 20, 2021 - A person who receives a life-changing diagnosis of dementia has many questions. What changes can I expect to my daily routine? How long can I remain independent? How will this affect my relationship with my loved ones?
As the number of dementia cases increases with our aging population, more and more families will be called upon to manage an array of challenging behaviours and cope with the progression of declining cognitive and physical functions of their loved one. To educate and empower its citizens, the City of Westmount partnered with McGill University’s Faculty of Medicine and Caregiver Crosswalk Inc. to offer a free public lecture on May 15th, Understanding and preparing for the reality of dementia.
