Alzheimer's Awareness Month

read

January is Alzheimer's Awareness Month. It's never too early, or too late, to connect with us.

This January, we'll be sharing the stories of some of our clients and how they were supported on their dementia journey. This will, hopefully, encourage other Nova Scotians facing the same journey to reach out to us as soon as possible, so they can also receive the support they need.

Join the conversation on social media! Find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.
