Dementia Learning Series – Update


by David Herman

About a month ago I brought to everyone’s attention the First Link Dementia Learning series. After returning from a trip “home” to Nova Scotia, I checked in with Mary Campbell – Education & Support Coordinator with the Alzheimer Society of Lanark Leeds Grenville, to see how it has been going. To say she is pleased with the attendance I think would be an understatement.

The last session was to be on June 24, but Mary tells me that she has added another session to be held on July 8 from 1-2:30 pm, and the topic will be of interest to many as it will be exploring the importance of sleep. Mary is bringing an expert from our own community to lead this session in the person of Shulamit Ber Levtov, or Shula for short. Shula is a counsellor, social worker, and Yoga teacher. I have attended sessions put on by Shula a couple of times, and I am sure you will find this session to be helpful and informative.

As before, to allow for planning, you are encouraged to pre-register (no charge). Mary can be reached at or 1-866-576-8556.
