Webinar: People Living With Dementia Share Their Wisdom

July 13 @ 10:30 am - August 24 @ 12:00 pm

Join Myrna Norman as she hosts and moderates a three-part webinar series – July 13, August 10 and August 24 – where she and others share their insights, experiences and wisdom about living well with dementia.

People living with dementia have tremendous wisdom and knowledge to share. In this three-part-webinar series, supported by the Murray Alzheimer Research and Education Program (MAREP), panelists will discuss their experience receiving their diagnosis, as well as the stigma and misconceptions around dementia. MAREP is a collaborative research and education program that aims to enhance well-being for individuals impacted by dementia, including people living with dementia, care partners, healthcare providers and community members.

This webinar series is free and open to the public. Join one or all three. Registration is required.

These webinars are a great opportunity for:
• people living with dementia to connect with a strong, supportive community;
• care partners to hear first-hand experiences and insights from those living with dementia;
• the general public to learn how to live well with dementia and ways to provide support.

Attendees are encouraged to ask questions, reconsider their assumptions and learn something new.

The bottom line is because we’re caring for patients. People who know best are those who are receiving the care so it makes logical sense that we would consult with them about their experiences. By connecting with PVN we have been able to educate our teams about the value of patient partners and how important their perspective is in our services.
