Family Caregivers of BC goal is to improve the quality of life for unpaid family / friend caregivers. As a provincial non-profit dedicated 100% caregivers, we provide support, information and education – all free thanks to our donors (Island Health, United Way of Greater Victoria and the Ministry of Health). We work closely with health care providers and community-based seniors organizations to ensure caregivers are identified, referred for support, and included as partners in care.
Families across British Columbia are affected by Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. The Alzheimer Society of B.C.’s ultimate vision is a world without dementia; that vision begins with a world where people living with the disease are welcomed, acknowledged and included. Working in communities throughout the province, the Society supports, educates and advocates for people with dementia, as well as enabling research into the disease. As part of a national federation, the Society is a leading authority on the disease in Canada.
