January, Alzheimer's disease awareness month

Did you know that women are doubly affected by Alzheimer’s disease? They outnumber men living with the disease and more often than not shoulder the responsibility  of caring for a family member with it. 

You know these women. They are the special women in your life – mothers, wives, sisters, grandmothers, and friends. 

That’s why this January during Alzheimer Awareness Month, the Alzheimer Society is launching a nationwide campaign to get Quebecers talking about  Alzheimer’s disease. We want women to take action, be Alzheimer’s savvy, know the warning signs and take steps to reduce their risk – not only for themselves but for those in their care. 

No one should have to face this disease alone. The Alzheimer Society can help. 

Watch for our campaign kick-off on January 6, 2015, at www.alzheimerquebec.ca
