Minister Tinee Furbert recently highlighted initiatives and resources aimed at supporting dementia care on the island in light of World Alzheimer’s Month being recognized in September.

Minister Furbert said, “As we celebrated World Alzheimer’s Month during September, I am happy to share resources for those living with dementia, and those caring for them.”

“In February 2021, our Ministry launched ‘Dementia Care in Bermuda’, an educational campaign to support families, caregivers, and the general public who may encounter someone with dementia or who may be at risk of developing dementia.”

“To date, we have hosted a 6-month radio talk show on Magic 102.7 FM, three panel discussions, a social media educational campaign, and are now launching ‘Dementia Helpcards’.”
