AltspaceVR

PAST EVENT

November is National Alzheimer's Awareness Month and National Family Caregiver's Month. Join AltspaceVR for a special town hall event recognizing this important awareness campaign. Alzheimer's disease kills more people, than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. Every 66 seconds someone develops the disease. What do you know about your risk of Alzheimer's? Is someone you love currently struggling with the symptoms? Or are you and your family struggling with caring for someone with signs of dementia? Join Vivian Chazen, Manager of Virtual Programs with Mather LifeWays, as she moderates an important discussion on how the devastating disease effects your life. Share your stories, learn about resources and hear cutting edge research on the effects of VR in treating dementia--by Dr. Sandra M McKay, PhD, the manager of Research & Evaluation at Toronto's VHA Home HealthCare.
