Every five minutes someone in Canada is diagnosed with dementia. Currently, there are 11,843 persons living with dementia in Durham Region, and that number is expected to double by 2030.
For over 40 years, the Alzheimer Society of Durham Region has been dedicated to improving the quality of life of those living with dementia, their care partners and families in our community. While there is currently no cure, our vision is to live in a community where people living with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias are accepted and supported in their environment.
