Importance of volunteering
Currently, in Canada, there are over 564,000 people living with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. This disease is expected to affect 937,000 Canadians by 2031. 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.
