Cross Connections Lunch and Learn October 19, 2017:  Dementia           Start Time: 11:30 am

Location:  Lakeview United Church

For this Lunch and Learn, I will lead a presentation and discussion on Dementia.  The first part will be a discussion about how it frightens us.  The second part will be on reducing our risks of experiencing dementia looking at social activities, diet, physical exercise and mental exercise.  If there is time and interest, we will finish with making communities safer and friendlier for people with dementia and their families including a brief report on the Westhills and Okotoks Community Projects.  Anyone who wishes will be provided with homework for a follow-up.

One of the resources for this presentation will be Aging With Grace by David Snowdon, Ph.D about the Nun Study.   Another is Dementia Connections, Fall 2017 as well as learnings from other workshops.
