Dementia is a growing public health crisis that threatens to overwhelm families, communities and our health-care system. This disease takes more than just life; it takes memories and abilities first, leaving individuals entirely dependent on their caregivers. With over 250,000 Ontarians diagnosed and that total rising every year, we need to take action now.
At the Alzheimer Society, we are dedicated to providing Help for Today. Hope for Tomorrow… ®. But we can’t do this alone. We need volunteers of all ages and skills to help make a difference in the lives of people with dementia. Check out the links below to see how you can get involved.
