Vital services such as education, support, respite & stimulation have developed over the years with “particular attention given to the cultural diversity.” The Society’s educational mandate is “to sensitize the public & promote a better understanding of the variety of Alzheimer’s & related disease & the services available to them.” Among the services, regular Art Therapy sessions & Activity Centres provide fun & stimulating engagement for people living with the disease & much needed respite time for their caregivers.
Last year was the 10th anniversary of my Mom’s passing; how much better her last years would have been had we access to these services. Homeira lost her Mom to Alzheimer disease in April 2016; the abundance & generosity of help her family received was worth its weight in gold. How many people are touched by the consequences of this disease?….
While we like to imagine our futures bright, we must be ever vigilant. Your presence & your investment are valuable contributions & vital in keeping the cherished legacy the Alzheimer Society has created for us, robust & thriving. Thank you to everyone who attended the launch of “Tea & Conversation” to benefit the Alzheimer Society, on November 12, 2016. Your generosity was greatly appreciated.
With warm regards,
