Board President's Message

September 2017 - A message from Alzheimer Society of Durham Region Board President

Brian McAuley

Dear Friends,

In Canada each year, 25,000 new cases of dementia are diagnosed. Considering expected population growth over the next 20 years, we anticipate there will be 12,000 in Durham Region living with dementia. These statistics are a stark reminder of the growing need for the services of the Alzheimer Society.

So, as part of our mission to improve the quality of life of people with Alzheimer’s disease, or related dementias, and their care partners, the Board continues to focus on executing the Strategic Plan we set out on 2 years ago, hitting key milestones, while keeping an eye to the future by working collaboratively with our partners to ensure the needs of our community are met.

The following pages highlight our success we share in moving our mission forward. Our stories paint a picture of the year’s achievements – where we are now, and where we want to be. But as you read, join us on the journey to where our momentum will take us.


Brian McAuley

Board President
