Awareness Breakfasts

Support Nova Scotians living with dementia!

In January, the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia hosts Awareness Breakfasts in Halifax, Sydney, and on the South Shore. The Alzheimer Awareness Breakfasts engage community members, physicians, nursing home employees, home care agencies, and businesses in education on Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. Anyone can attend the breakfasts.

The breakfasts provide an important chance to come together to learn about Alzheimer’s and other dementias.  This year the theme of all three breakfasts will be "Sharing the Journey" where we will hear about different perspectives of being on the journey with dementia.
