Making a donation to the Alzheimer Society of Simcoe County is investing in the health and well-being of the growing seniors community in Simcoe County. Age is the biggest risk factor in developing dementia with current statistics showing that 1 in 11 Canadians over the age of 65 have Alzheimer's disease or other dementia. Families that are informed about the disease, treatment options, risk factors and who are informed about ways to manage difficult behaviours as they arise are far more likely to effectively manage their dementia journey than those who try to manage without support.
Your donation funds education programs and support services to these families. Over 50% of our funding comes from the support of our community. It is through the generosity of individual donors that we are able to support families and guide them through their Alzheimer journey.
Donations directed by donors to research will be forwarded to the Alzheimer Society of Canada's Research Program.
