Annual Report 2019-20
The theme for this year’s report is ‘Forward’, because 2019-20 was a year of great progress and advancement for this organization.
Even before Covid-19 hit, our health and community care system was undergoing a re-imagining – one that has been needed for quite some time. Our Society has been an active participant in the Ontario Health Team transformation process, and we have embraced the goals and the spirit of this process in our own day-to-day work.
We are working more collaboratively than ever before to ensure that precious resources – including the funds that our donors so generously invest in our work – are leveraged for greatest impact. And, of course, we are embracing new technology to create new opportunities to support our clients.
We remain steadfast in our commitment to deliver innovative, responsive and inclusive programming that will continuously evolve and adapt to the changing needs of our community. After all, people living with dementia (and care partners) are, and will always be, at the centre of everything we do.
For over 35 years, our Society has been a safe haven for people living with dementia and their families. A place of understanding and of compassion. A place where people ‘get it’.
Regardless of what the future brings for our world, please know that your local Alzheimer Society will always be that safe haven — a place where you can show up as you are and find the support, resources and community you need to live well.
