Practical advice from caregivers, for caregivers 

"Sharing the Journey" is a video series - funded by the Victoria Hospitals Foundation - that offers family caregivers practical advice to help them respond to new challenges while maintaining a meaningful and healthy relationship with a loved one living with dementia. 

The information in these videos is useful for everyone in the community who may have friends, neighbours, coworkers or customers who have dementia. These videos are also available on our Island Health YouTube channel.
