Help for Today. Hope for Tomorrow...®

The Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan is the province's leading dementia care and research charity. With Resource Centres located throughout the province, we offer Help for Today through our programs and services for people living with dementia, and Hope for Tomorrow by funding research to find a cure and to improve care.

Our Vision

A world without Alzheimer's disease and related disorders.

Our Mission

To alleviate the personal and social consequences of Alzheimer's disease and related disorders and to promote the search for a cause and a cure.

Programs and Services

Group, telephone and individual support provides practical information and strategies that help people living with dementia and their caregivers. They become better equipped to understand and cope with dementia symptoms, and to plan for the future. We offer a comfortable environment to seek assistance, share experiences and learn ways to cope.

Awareness

Our education programs help people understand Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, learn strategies to adapt to living their lives, and gain access to community resources. Awareness activities focus on understanding warning signs and the benefits of getting an early diagnosis. Our Healthy Brain program promotes an understanding of ways to reduce the risk of developing dementia.

Advocacy

Public policy and the delivery of health care must reflect the issues and reality of people affected by the disease, their families and caregivers. The Society leads provincial efforts to ensure that dementia is a health care priority in Saskatchewan.

 

Research

The Alzheimer Society is a leading funder of research to find the causes, a cure and treatments for Alzheimer's disease, as well as research to help improve the quality of life for those who are already affected. We fund the Saskatchewan Research Chair in Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementia in partnership with the Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation and with the support of the University of Saskatchewan, and contribute to the Alzheimer Society of Canada Research Program.
