Our Public Education Coordinator is breaking down stigma and dispelling myths about dementia by providing accurate, helpful information to the community. Targeted towards audiences' needs, our tailored sessions provide valuable information on brain health and diseases of the brain. As our population ages, the number of people diagnosed with dementia increases and so does the need for accurate information about disease progression, caregiving strategies and available community supports. Reduction of risk factors and preventative education are key components to helping people stay healthy.
To meet our communities growing need we have to expand our Education Program to create an online option for those who are unable to attend an in-class session.
The Society provides Help for Today and Hope for Tomorrow by offering support and programs for individuals and their families affected by Alzheimer's disease and other related dementias.
Alzheimer Society Peel exists to alleviate the personal and social consequences of Alzheimer's disease and related dementia; to help find the cause, prevention and cure.
