Help us celebrate Alzheimer’s Awareness Month 2020!

I live with dementia: Ken and Mark

Canadians living with dementia are going public for a third consecutive year in an effort to change hearts and minds. They are courageously stepping forward with their personal stories in the Alzheimer Society’s nation-wide campaign, I live with dementia. Let me help you understand as part of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month in January.

Spurred by alarming research indicating that 1 in 4 Canadians would feel ashamed or embarrassed if they had dementia, the campaign gives a voice to Canadians with dementia who are frustrated by the constant assumptions and misinformation associated with the disease.

Changing the conversation has to start close to home, though. Families across the province are sharing their stories of the dementia journey. Throughout the month, come back and read about the experiences of families in B.C. Read their stories:
