Alzheimer's Learning Day

With 564,000 Canadians currently living with dementia, according to the Alzheimer Society of Canada, nearly everyone is touched by this condition in their lifetime.

Those living with Alzheimer’s may include our parents, spouses, clients, co-workers, neighbours or grandparents, and they need us to understand more about the disease.

We all have something to learn or share about Alzheimer’s, as well as other forms of dementia. Join us on Alzheimer’s Learning℠ Day so together we can be better prepared to care for our friends and loved ones.
