Pandemic support for people with dementia in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows
My Fears and Frustrations: Living with Dementia During a Pandemic is a free one-hour virtual peer-support group
The impact of COVID-19 has been felt right across the globe.
People have had to get used to new routines with respect to social distancing, wearing face masks and constantly washing and sanitizing their hands.
But for people living with dementia, these new routines can be confusing, difficult to remember and ultimately cause them to become more isolated than they already are.
My Fears and Frustrations: Living with Dementia During a Pandemic, a free one-hour virtual peer-support group for persons living with dementia, is being hosted by the Adult Cognitive Wellness Centre.
Marissa Stalman, outreach and community development coordinator with the centre, will be facilitating the group.
