Importance of volunteering
The number of Canadians with cognitive impairment, including dementia, is expected to double by 2031.1 The costs to our health-care system will be enormous. The human cost of this devastating disease cannot be estimated. We must continue to look at new and innovative ways to support the work that needs to be done in our communities.
We really could not do what we do to support people with dementia, and raise money to find a cure, without volunteers. We value your experience, your input, your enthusiasm and the opportunity to work with you. To find out how you can get involved please contact your local Alzheimer Society.
