Blue Umbrella Program for Businesses and Organizations

In partnership with Impact Ajax, Town of Ajax, and the Town of Whitby Mayor's Community Development Fund, a new, pilot program is being offered to businesses and organizations in Ajax and Whitby in 2017!

By choosing to have your business/organization take part, you will have the opportunity to receive education about dementia, and learn strategies to provide good customer service to people living with dementia.

  • Training is provided FREE by Alzheimer Society of Durham Region staff/volunteers
  • Receive and display a Blue Umbrella Program logo to encourage people living with dementia and their care partners to choose your business/organization
  • Your establishment will be designated as dementia-friendly and listed in the "Dementia-Friendly Directory" on the Alzheimer Society of Durham Region's website

Are you or your business/organization interested in finding out how to be a part of the Blue Umbrella Program? Find out how to get involved by emailing Monique DeBrouwer (Ajax) or by calling 905-576-2567
