Ep 18: Alzheimers Awareness

On today's episode I get to speak to Julie Wong and Bernice Chan of the Alzheimer Society of Toronto.  When I was working the streets one of those calls that always caused you to go the extra mile and dig a little deeper was a call for someone with Alzheimers that had gone wandering/missing.  One of the most beneficial things to do is learn more about the disease of Alzheimers and dimentia related brain illnesses and challenges.  That's why I'm so excited about this episode...information from the experts about things you can do, things to look for and tips to help you in search and strategies for prevention. This episode is not just for law enforcement but also the families that meet the challenge of this horrible disease and our communities at large.  Julie and Bernice have provided some great resources here for you and I encourage you to educate yourself.

It doesn't matter where you're from, information is infromation and it will be applicable no matter where your jurisdiction is.  http://www.alzheimer.ca/~/media/Files/national/Core-lit-brochures/10_Warning_Signs_e.pdf   http://www.alzheimer.ca/~/media/Files/national/AW2015/10WarningSigns_colour.pdf   http://www.alzheimer.ca/en/on/Finding-Your-Way/Tools-and-resources   I have to give a shout out to my girl Romina Oliverio (@RominaOliverio on Twitter) who asked if this would make for a good topic for the podcast. Oh yeah it is!! This is great information. Thanks Romina.   You can reach out for more information to Julie, Bernice or Romina. Twitter: @ALZToronto Web: www.alzheimertoronto.org
