Coming to Toronto next week!
Wednesday, 22 June 2011 13:47

Hello All

 

It's been just over two years that I started screening "Forgetful Not Forgotten"

and talking to the public about my experiences.

Along the way I have met some great people and made a lot of new friends,

as well I have realized that there is still not enough

being done to create awareness and educate the public....

so I will continue to do presenations and help people understand what a

person with dementia and a family goes through!

 

I will be at the Leaside Retirement Residence Nest Wednesday June 29th at 2pm,

screening the film and again sharing with the public.

This event is open to the public so please come by and introduce yourself!

 

I have been interviewing caregviers and their familes since January,

and this footage will be for a

new project and a new presenation that I will be starting in the fall.

I am also looking for younger caregviers to tell their stories.

please contact me here or at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

 

Please check out this facebook page!

Hello Again

I am finally back on here, just wanted to update everyone on things. From March 25-29 I was in Toronto attending the International Alzheimer's Disease conference, and I just wanted to thank Comcare/Revera for their sponsorship! Becasue I have been traveling around Canada for the past two years I knew a lot of people at the conference and it was great to see some familiar faces! and nice to catch up with some old friends. I found some of the conference to be a lot of statistics and studies, which I was not really interested in, however I did go to a couple of wrokshops that were very inspiring. And I know now that I must continue to develop new projects to help educate the general public about these diesease!!!

This weekend I am off to Vancouver to present at the Canadian Geriatrics Society 31st annual Scientific Meeting, and again I would like to thank everyone who made this trip possible for me. I have also been interviewing families and caregivers and other professionals for a new caregiver project, and I wanted to thank everyone who has volunteered their time. I have recently started editing footage from a retired doctor I met in Northern Ontario who's wife has Alzheimer's and has been filming her for 40 years. I will keep you updated on this project as well.

I also wanted to give a mention of LCARE and all the great success they have had as of late. The small organization started just over a year ago and is doing some great things already, great work everyone! LCARE supports caregivers in the Laurentians here in Quebec and I am pleases to sit on their board of directors.

Finally this Thursday April 24th in Toronto a fundraiser is being held for the Alzheimer's Society. This event is being held by my friend Dana who is also a child of EOAD. Please visit

http://www.facebook.com/?ref=logo#!/event.php?eid=152292044831053&index=1

and if you can't attend you can still dontate!!!!

You can also follow events on Facebook!

take care
