In 2012, almost one-third of the Canadian population provided care to family members or friends with long-term health conditions, primarily those linked to aging/frailty and forms of dementia. This number will only increase, placing more and more younger Canadians under economic, physical, and psychological distress.
On Tuesday September 25, join Women’s Brain Health Initiative and AGE-WELL and hear from advocate Ron Beleno and two young women featured in the documentary MUCH TOO YOUNG who have provided care to their mom since she was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s.
Featuring Kathleen Fraschetti and Emily Fraschetti.
This event is part of the MIND MATTERS: WOMEN’S BRAIN HEALTH AND TECHNOLOGY series and will be recorded and made available online.
