This holiday season, the Alzheimer Society of BC is asking all British Columbians to join them in building communities that are more welcoming, compassionate and inclusive for people living with dementia.
The Society works with local governments, professional groups and the general public to assist Canadian communities in becoming truly dementia-friendly. In this video from the society we hear from Jim Mann, a person living with dementia, who offers insight into the daily struggles of living with the disease – and how members of the community can help.
As proud sponsors of the Alzheimer Society of BC, we encourage you to get educated about the disease. With 560,000 Canadians living with dementia, and 1.1 million Canadians impacted either directly or indirectly, it’s important to recognize that those living with dementia deserve understanding, compassion, and support.
Please join the Alzheimer Society of BC in building Dementia-Friendly Communities across British Columbia. For more information about how you can join the movement to build more Dementia-Friendly Communities, please contact Heather Cowie at 604-742-4941 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
