How to Protect Your Family from Colds and the Flu with Essential Oils

Tuesday, November 14, 2017
1 to 3 p.m.

Essential oils are the most powerful part of the plant and have been used by many cultures for thousands of years. These drops, applied topically or inhaled, can complement your health regime and help keep you and your family protected from colds and the flu during the winter season. In this seminar, you will learn which oils and blends can benefit you – and you can even take home a blend to get started!

This seminar will be presented by Winnifred Greer and Claudine Lascelle. Winnifred is a registered massage therapist with the Association Québécoise des Thérapeutes Naturels (AQTN). Claudine is a certified life coach and health and wellness advocate. Both are aromatherapy students with the Joyessence Aromatherapy Centre.

Dementia Awareness

Tuesday, November 21, 2017
1 to 3 p.m.

Did you know that two out of every three people know someone with dementia?

Come learn in a caring and stress-free environment the basic facts of dementia, the common causes, how to recognize the symptoms, myths and tips, how to better communicate with those who have it, and more.

Dementia is not a disease but a disorder that is chronic and progressive in nature. In dementia, there is deterioration in cognitive function that includes symptoms that are severe enough to impede or slow down everyday activities and is beyond what might be expected of normal aging. The more you know about dementia, the more prepared you will be to cope and help the people with dementia live better lives.

Our presenter is Kirstin Bennett, a health and wellness coach and the West Island care manager for Bayshore Home Health.

Open to all, but registration is required. To register, please sign up here or call the WIWC Office at 514-695-8529.  Free childcare for preschool-aged children is available, but please register for this service by 3 p.m. the day prior to the seminar by calling 514-695-8529.
