Become a Monthly Donor & Have Your Donation Matched

Throughout our lives, we become forever changed by the people who matter to us most. For Catherine Booth, they include her dad, Walter.

Walter Booth was a gifted engineer, a successful businessman, and a father who had a generous spirit.

Catherine admired and loved her dad. As her mentor, he inspired her to pursue her own career in engineering and on her graduation day, he was the one who placed Catherine’s Iron Ring on her finger—one of the most special memories they shared.

Throughout his life, he was always on the go, but life took a turn shortly after Walter retired. The family lost their wonderful mother, Marilyn.

Then Walter was diagnosed with dementia.

Watching how Alzheimer’s affected Walter more and more was heartbreaking for Catherine and their family. He became more withdrawn over time, and they didn’t know how to help him.

That is why Catherine Booth and her husband, Michael Kirk, will match your gift this World Alzheimer’s Month in loving memory of Walter Booth when you become a monthly donor by World Alzheimer’s Day on September 21.

People living with dementia and their care partners need our support now more than ever. Your contribution today will connect a family to education, counselling, and social recreation programs.
