The number of Ontarians with dementia is expected to increase by 40% in the next decade. The human costs and the costs to our health-care system will be enormous. We really could not do what we do to support people with dementia, and raise money to find a cure, without volunteers.


We value your experience, your input, your enthusiasm and the opportunity to work with you. To find out how you can get involved, please contact Shannon Van Watteghem at 519-974-2220 ext. 237 or send an email to [email protected]
