June Issue

Dear Supporter,

Throughout the month of May, our community worked together to show those living with dementia and their care partners that they do not walk this journey alone. 

Together, our Walkers walked and fundraised along the way, collectively raising $XX.XX across Ontario! Thank you for your hard work and commitment. Our Walkers helped raise crucial funds and awareness to meet the growing demand in life-changing programs and services that our community relies on.

See you in 2023!

Dementia doesn’t discriminate and neither do we

The Alzheimer Society stands united with the LGBTQ2S+ community and continuously strives to foster an environment that is a safe space for all clients to be their true selves so they can receive the best dementia support possible.

When providing care to a person living with dementia, whether you or they self-identify as part of the LGBTQ2S+ community, or not, there are many steps you can take to ensure that you are creating a safe space. Need more information?
