Help us celebrate Alzheimer’s Awareness Month 2020! I live with dementia: Ken and Mark Canadians living with dementia are going public for a third consecutive year in an effort to change hearts and minds. They are courageously stepping forward with their personal stories in the Alzheimer Society’s nation-wide campaign, I live with dementia. Let me help you understand as part of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month in January. Spurred by alarming research indicating that 1 in 4 Canadians would feel ashamed or embarrassed if they had dementia, the campaign gives a voice to Canadians with dementia who are frustrated by the constant assumptions and misinformation associated with the disease. Changing the conversation has to start close to home, though. Families across the province are sharing their stories of the dementia journey. Throughout the month, come back and read about the experiences of families in B.C. Read their stories hereRead More Here Alzheimer.ca
The University Hospital of Northern B.C. auxiliary is looking for experienced knitters this winter who would be interested in knitting baby items to be sold at the hospital gift shop. Proceeds of all that is sold at the gift shop by hospital gift shop volunteers goes toward much needed equipment for the hospital. Ideally, knitters would be experienced, non-smokers who could create a high quality product to sell in the gift shop. More rustically knitted items or items that require laundering before they're sold will be donated to the hospital auxiliary thrift shop, Wilkins explained. Donations of wool are also welcome and specifically those soft yarns in pastel colours suitable for baby clothes. To become a volunteer knitter for the auxiliary or a gift shop volunteer leave a message at the Gift Shop for Doreen Wilkins or Janet Wheeldon at 250-565-2231.Read More Here PG Hospital Auxiliary
