The demands of caregiving can have an effect on well-being.

Are you experiencing brain fatigue? Memory going? Are you living and working in a multitasking environment? Did you know that stress kills brain cells and accelerates brain aging?

The new field of applied educational neuroscience has meaningful answers.

Vancouver Island’s Gary Anaka, a leading brain-based learning facilitator, will present a practical workshop Feb. 26 for caregivers and others interested in protecting their brains. It happens at the Crown Isle Resort from 1 to 2:30 p.m.

Liz Friis, Glacier View Lodge’s director of resident lifestyle and community programs, says, “Many people experience changes to their brain function as they age. It has been my pleasure to hear Gary speak on two occasions.  I am always inspired by his vibrant presentations.

"Glacier View Lodge would like to extend thanks to Investor’s Group for their financial sponsorship of this worthwhile workshop.”

To register for the workshop, phone 250-338-1451. The workshop fee is $10 and the registration deadline is Feb. 22.
