Family Education

Learning new skills can help you face the daily realities of living with and caring for a person with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia – and it may help you better understand your own feelings. The Alzheimer Society of Manitoba offers Family Education throughout the province to educate and empower people with dementia, their families and friends.

Supporting the health and wellbeing of our local community is our highest priority. In an effort to minimize the spread of the Covid-19 virus, we are postponing our public education.

This can be a difficult and isolating time for people. We are open, call us if you have any questions or want to talk.
Call 204-943-6622 (Winnipeg) or 1-800-378-6699 (in Manitoba) or email support@alzheimer.mb.ca.
