Chuck @ 925 supports: Alzheimer’s Awareness Month

Each January, the Alzheimer Society supports and leads Canada’s Alzheimer’s Awareness Month.

During this month, the Society encourages organizations across Canada, and individuals like you, to learn more about dementia and its stark impact on Canadians.

By understanding what people living with dementia experience in their day-to-day lives – their struggles, their successes, and their hopes – together we can raise awareness of dementia throughout Canada.

Awareness is the first step to fighting stigmareinforcing human rights , and pushing for policy change, as well as other actions that can lift up Canadians living with dementia.

Please support Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. It’s an easy start to helping your fellow Canadians who are living with this serious disease.

3. Learn more about dementia

Learning more about dementia through the Alzheimer Society’s many resources can help someone identify the warning signs of dementia and get them an early diagnosis, leading to that person getting the help and support they need earlier.

A little learning can make all the difference in helping someone live as well with dementia as possible.

4. Listen to the stories of people with lived experience

The best way to understand the impact of dementia, and the need for further help and support, is to hear directly from people with lived experience of it.

Over the next little while, the Alzheimer Society will be publishing more stories from people living with dementia, caregivers and researchers alike. We encourage you to read and share them among people you know. Perhaps there is someone who will want to share their story as well!
