Alzheimer's Awareness Month


January is Alzheimer's Awareness Month. The sooner you talk about dementia, the more we can help.

The sooner you talk about dementia, the more we can help

This January, we'll be reflecting on changes over the past year and how those changes will shape our ongoing program delivery. We'll be sparking conversations about dementia, to get people more open and comfortable talking about Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Because talking about it, leads to education and support. 

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