To help improve the public's knowledge and understanding of Alzheimer's disease, The Gordie Howe C.A.R.E.S initiative will provide educational materials and events, including seminars, webinars, newsletters and counselling sessions.
Understanding Alzheimer's disease and how to cope with it are essential tools in our arsenal for combatting the significant stress, disruption and difficulties it causes in sufferers and their families.
These resources will focused on improving coping skills, promoting disease management strategies, as well as sharing relevant, up-to-date research and program updates.
Monthly seminars will be held in various locations, including our educational theatre located at 22 Shawnee Hill SW, Calgary, AB. The core focus of the seminars will be to help caregivers with tactics and strategies to manage care for their loved ones afflicted with the disease.
Online seminars featuring medical doctors, researchers and healthcare professionals will also be regularly made available through our website.
Our monthly published newsletter will provide regular updates on Alzheimer's disease related information, research, programs and coping mechanisms. The newsletter is available in either digital or physical hard copy form.
