Thank you, volunteers!

From April 15 to 21, the Alzheimer Society of Thunder Bay celebrates our volunteers who stand amidst Canada’s 12.7 million volunteers during National Volunteer Week.

During National Volunteer Week, we want to thank our outstanding volunteers, who offer their time, their skills, their dedication and their compassion to assist the Alzheimer Society in delivering vital programs and services. Your support is absolutely invaluable to our staff, and to families across our community who are living with a dementia diagnosis. Thank you.

The number of Canadians with cognitive impairment, including dementia, is expected to double 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.
