Currently, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. But a diagnosis doesn’t mean that you can’t live well, as a vital and integral member of your community. This is the Alzheimer Society’s vision. For more than 30 years, the Alzheimer Society has leveraged its own resources and those of the community to deliver health and wellness programs, education and support services to people with dementia and their caregivers.
Today, we are at a tipping point. The number of Canadians with dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease is rising sharply, due primarily to our aging population. We are seeing a rapid increase in demand for services in our community. In order to meet the need, we are planning a $3 million initiative, the Remember Me Campaign, which will allow us to expand the following programs: education, support and counselling, and health and wellness. In so doing, we will help more people with dementia live well with the disease.
