DEMENTIA TALK - Flipping Stigma

Quadra Circle presents a talk on taking action against stigma and discrimination associated with Dementia. A diagnosis of dementia can increase a person’s sense of vulnerability. Not only are people faced with challenging cognitive changes but too often many also face needless stigma and discrimination that can make the experience worse. As such, the discrimination caused by stigma that accompanies a diagnosis of dementia needs to be “flipped on its ear!” Learn how to recognize and respond to this stigma and discrimination. The material in this presentation was designed by people with dementia to help others.

Jude McCormick is a retired RN with a PhD in Education. She worked as a Seniors Nurse Consultant in Campbell River where she advocated for patients over the age of 70, especially those living with dementia and their care givers.

TALK: SEE SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING - Reducing Risk for Older Adults

The "See Something, Say Something" program is designed to help people identify high-risk, vulnerable adults, particularly those who are isolated, living alone, and who would benefit from some type of assistance to maintain their independence. Everyone can play an important role in the community in keeping others safe, secure, and independent.

Tuesday October 17, 7:00 - 8:30 PM Quadra Community Centre Room 3, Doors open at 6:30 PM for coffee and snacks.
