Testimonials and Recognitions

Virtual Sessions

"The Adult Cognitive Wellness Centre from Langley has offered free cognitive wellness sessions for people with dementia since the beginning of June 2020. These sessions have been extremely therapeutic for my husband, Ed, and an absolute life-saver for me, the caregiver.

My husband looks forward to these sessions with anticipation – I’m sure he wishes it was more than once a week. Amy provides stimulating topics and guides discussion. She comes up with new and varied topics each week. His answers are always valued and as a result he responds to her encouragement. He has so much fun with her and I am so happy that this is continuing while covid dominates our activities. Someday I hope Ed will be able to attend the Wellness Centre in person."

Virtual Wellness Sessions

My dad has been attending the Adult Cognitive Wellness Centre's Virtual Sessions since last May. With the sudden "stay-at-home" orders due to the COVID-19 pandemic, these meetings were a very welcome addition to our very limited routine. My dad is dealing with moderate dementia, and I was apprehensive at first over how he would react to the wellness sessions. He has loved every meeting though, and looks forward to them every week.

Amy is an amazing facilitator and she has the participants active and lively for the full hour. They talk about everything under the sun, do fun quizzes and trivia, recount stories of their past adventures, and laugh - a lot. Having someone outside our family unit to interact with has been a blessing. Social connections are so important for people with dementia, and the pandemic has made all our normal activities impossible. For that one hour each week, my dad feels like he's gone out and spent time with people, and he is energized by it. He has developed his routine of 'getting ready' for the meeting and is always looking his best while eagerly waiting for the 'door' to open.

We are so grateful for the Virtual Wellness Sessions.
