Become a Dementia Friend Champion!  A Dementia Friend Champion is someone who turns their understanding of dementia into action to provide inclusion, acceptance and support for people living with memory loss and dementia.

BSOSS is Sponsoring Burnaby’s first Dementia Friendly Cafe Series.  There will be an informative speaker/presentation, music, activities and food at every cafe.

The cafe requires a team of talented dedicated volunteers to assist with set-up, take-down, kitchen support (making coffee and tea, plating food), musicians for sing-a-longs, crafters to lead activities and lots of hosts and hostess to welcome the guests and share the café experience with them.  Training will be provided.

Alzheimer Society of B.C. will provide their “Dementia Friends” training and BSOSS will provide additional and ongoing training and support.
