We are a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping people affected by Alzheimer's disease. Care and support are central to what we do. We strive to improve the quality of life for those affected by Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.
Organization Description and Historical Background
The Alzheimer Society of Timmins-Porcupine District was founded by a group of family caregivers in 1988 under the leadership of Monica Bevil. It is a non-profit corporation and registered charity governed by a Board of Directors who are elected by the membership at the Annual General Meeting held in June each year.
The Society is operated and managed by a staff team of full- and part-time employees who are responsible for the design and implementation of family support and education services.
The Society receives funding from the Ministry of Health, community donations and memorials. Research support dollars are raised through fundraising organized by the Society.
The Society of Timmins-Porcupine District Inc., through its affiliation with the Alzheimer Society of Ontario and the Alzheimer Society of Canada, maintains an active role in supporting the growth and development of the Alzheimer's movement.
