The Alzheimer Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories (AS AB/NT) is excited and proud to share its new online resource Dementia in the Workplace at DementiaAlberta.ca

The Dementia in the Workplace site includes topics such as:
The warning signs of dementia and where to seek help.
How to have productive, compassionate conversations related to dementia in the workplace.
Alberta’s laws and employment standards, and how they apply when an employee is diagnosed with dementia or needs to provide care to someone diagnosed with dementia.
