Raise your voice

The Alzheimer Society of PEI gives a voice to all Islanders affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias at all levels of government. We raise awareness about the issues and concerns that matter most to them.

We work with politicians, policy makers and other community and health-care organizations to advocate for change in legislation, policies and programs at all levels of government.

Support from our governments is essential to meet the needs of everyone touched by this devastating illness. The Alzheimer Society of PEI is committed to advocating for legislation, policies and programs that are responsive to the needs of people with dementia, their families and caregivers.

But we can’t do it alone. By working together, we can offer the best care for today and the best hope for a world without Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

The Alzheimer Society is calling for a national dementia strategy to address the growing dementia crisis and make dementia a national priority. A national dementia plan is vital to the future of Canada’s health-care system. The costs of dementia are skyrocketing, and we need your help. By 2040, the cost to Canadians will be an incredible $293 billion per year.1
