Just for Kids
The following are programs offered for kids by The Alzheimer Society of Oxford...
Remember Me is a program kids can attend to learn more about Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In four sessions, you’ll find out why your family member with the disease may be acting differently, how you can talk to them, which activities you can do together and how the disease affects your family. The lessons include movies, games, crafts, and stories, so they’re always lots of fun!
Just for the Summer
This is another program available for grade 6 and high school students around Oxford County. In a one hour presentation, you’ll learn about Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects a person, watch a video and have some time at the end to ask questions.
The Alzheimer Society of Oxford offers a School Program designed to reach out to kids and youth who are coping with the effects of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias on family members. The goals of this program include:
- Increasing general awareness and understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and it's impact in Society.
- Supporting younger people who are coping with this disease within their family.
- Encouraging healthy choices and lifestyles associated with long-term brain health.

Just for Teens
"Forget-You-Not" is a four-session program for teens who have a family member or friend with Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia. It can help you learn how to feel more comfortable spending time around people with the disease, and is a great opportunity to meet and swap stories with teens in similar situations to the ones you face.
The program is offered on an as-needed basis, so if you’re interested, please contact the Alzheimer Society office by phone at 519-421-2466 or through email at [email protected].
