Todays speaker was Isabelle Boulay, who is the Research Coordinator and First Link Support at the Alzheimer Society of New Brunswick (ASNB) located in the Moncton Resource Centre.  She has a B.A. with a double major in Psychology and Philosophy from the University of Moncton.  Isabelle joined the ASNB following her graduation in 2020.  Previously, she had volunteered at the Society since 2017.  Her research focuses on support and education for caregivers and persons living with dementia.

Isabelle advised our club members of her upcoming research study being done throughout New Brunswick in the fall months.   This research study is for family members or friends of people living with Alzheimerโ€™s disease or another form of dementia.  It will help examine if a counselling program based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) would be beneficial for these caregivers.  Therapy provided will be free, and is being done only in New Brunswick.  It is hoped this program can be rolled out across Canada.

The researchers are currently looking to enroll participants until the end of September.  Please look over the study page and decide if this may be beneficial for you.

He moved to the Miramichi in 1966.

Always active in his community, James volunteered countless hours throughout the community, most notably as the past President for the Newcastle Rotary Club, the Newcastle Chamber of Commerce and The Gideons International. James has been an active member at The Point Church since 1988. James was the owner and operator of Miramichi City Accounting and previous to that he owned Jimโ€™s Coin Shop. James was also one of the founding owners of Miramichi Speedway in 1967, which featured a paved oval and figure-8 racing to the community.
