Heads Up: An Introduction to Brain Health

Tara Hildebrand, Alzheimer Society of British Columbia

Wednesday, January 30, 2019, 7:00 PM

Healthy aging is important for everyone, and it is essential to remember the health of your brain as well! January is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month

This workshop encourages participants to actively engage in protecting and maintaining their brain. Learn strategies and set goals for improving the health of your mind, body and spirit. Discussion will include: what dementia might look like, how to support those with dementia, what is happening inside the brain. Anyone interested in brain health is welcome to attend.

Tara Hildebrand is the Support and Education Coordinator for the Alzheimer Society of B.C. Tara worked for many years in long-term care providing recreation therapy to individuals with all types and stages of dementia. She now works for the Alzheimer Society, providing families with support, information and education. Her degree in education has been very beneficial when facilitating education sessions about dementia, and consequently helping to improve the quality of life of caregivers, families and the person with the diagnosis.
