2023 January Awareness Month

read

January is a busy month at the Alzheimer Society of Huron Perth. This year, our national campaign is Community Changes Everything. In Huron Perth, this couldn't be more true. From the Polar Bear Plunge in Goderich to Soup's On and Lights On in Stratford - our community is strong.

 Two photo frames are visible. In the left frame, an image of a senior couple are seen, a woman and a man. The woman is hugging the man from behind; they both have their eyes closed and are smiling softly. In the right frame, an image of three seniors on a hike are seen. Two senior women are laughing. The words "Community Changes Everything" are seen on the left side of the image.
