For over 40 years, the Alzheimer Society has been aleader in dementia care and support and we are committed to reducing stigma and making our communities more Dementia Friendly so that all those living with dementia can feel supported in their home and throughout Durham Region.

The Society works tirelessly to connect with those living with dementia and their care partners to ensure they have the support they need during the very difficult time,of COVID-19. While we have always been in contact through phone, like many organizations, we’ve adapted our service and delivery models to move our education,social and recreation, Young Onset Adult Day program and family support programs and services online to help ensure those we serve feel connected, engaged andsupported.

Support and education services are also available in French.
