Alzheimer Society Peel faces the growing challenges of serving clients, caregiver and their families with the rising incidence of
Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias. To ensure the community has access to help when they need it, the
Foundation has joined Alzheimer Society Peel to implement an online education program that will be available anywhere, anytime. Thus, erasing the barriers of time, distance and mobility. An e-learning option will help Alzheimer Society Peel continue to promote education awareness throughout the community and reach those individuals who otherwise cannot attend live trainings.
The Alzheimer Society of Peel has provided support for families and individuals dealing with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias since 1983. “It is difficult for many people suffering with Alzheimer’s and their families to travel to attend live training and education workshops. The funding from Home Instead will help erase the barriers of time, distance, and mobility for those who need these services.
The online education program is made possible by a grant from the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation. “Our mission is very similar to the Alzheimer Society of Peel, as we both help enhance the lives of aging adults and those who care for them,” said Roger H. Baumgart, Executive Director of the Foundation. “We are pleased to provide grant funding to the Alzheimer Society of Peel for making a positive difference in the safety, well-being and independence of seniors,” Baumgart said.
Home Instead offers free monthly newsletters with tips and advice for caregivers of elderly loved ones.
