Forget Me Not symbol
The Alzheimer Society uses the Forget Me Not flower as a symbol to represent memory loss, one of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. It is also a reminder to remember people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and their caregivers.
The three flowers in the symbol represent the person with dementia, the caregiver, and the Alzheimer Society.
As a non-profit organization, our financial records are available for anyone who is interested in viewing them.
Our work for people living with dementia wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of our sponsors.
