posted on August 15, 2017
Living with Dementia: One Day at a Time is a recorded webinar, presented by Mary Schulz, Director of Education, Alzheimer Society of Canada.
The description says, “A diagnosis of dementia doesn’t affect only the person with the disease. It affects his friends, family and co-workers. People with dementia and their families report that as difficult as it is to receive a diagnosis, the stigma they experience can be challenging. In this presentation, Roger Bumstead and his wife Mireille joined Mary Schulz, Director of Education, at the Alzheimer Society of Canada to address some of the challenges of living with dementia. Roger, 72, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease at age 65 shortly after his retirement from law enforcement.

In this hour-long discussion, the couple also offered some lessons learned and how they’re living life to the fullest.”
