The Alzheimer Society of Dufferin County provides many educational opportunities for people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, caregivers, and health-care professionals. Contact our office for more information or to register for any of our education events. Call 519-941-1221 or email [email protected]


Experience has shown that the earlier people begin to learn and strategize about coping with dementia, the better they are prepared and the better their care partners are able to provide support over time. We hope you will find relief in knowing that you are not alone and do not have to pioneer your own path, when so many have gone before and have shared their learning.

We are here to help.
