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.
