Alzheimer’s Learning Day

With 564,000 Canadians currently living with dementia, according to the Alzheimer Society of Canada, nearly everyone is touched by this disease in their lifetime.

On Alzheimer’s Learning Day, September 26, 2017, over 1,000 Canadians committed to learning and sharing their experiences about Alzheimer’s. Through understanding and education, we will be better prepared to care for our loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia disorder.

Let’s keep the spirit of Alzheimer’s Learning Day going! These resources can be used and shared throughout the year.



Watch a recorded webinar to enhance your knowledge about Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Whether you are a family or professional caregiver, these webinars will provide tips and best practices for Alzheimer’s and dementia care.
