Alzheimer's Awareness Month

In January, we encourage individuals to learn more about dementia and its impact on Canadian families. By understanding what people living with dementia experience in their day-to-day lives – their struggles, their successes, and their hopes – together we can raise awareness of dementia throughout our communities and across Canada. To learn more, visit Halton Hills Public Library for a variety of resources to learn, understand and support families in the community.

Introduction to Cognitive Care Kits – Join us to learn about our Cognitive Care Kits. In this session, individuals, caregivers, and friends will learn how to use the Kits to exercise the mind, retain skills, and encourage social development for people living with dementia. Visit our Event Calendar to register and learn more.

Alzheimer Society Social Café – Join us at the Georgetown Branch for the Alzheimer Society Social Café – a drop-in social group for people living with dementia and their care partners. Run by the Alzheimer Society of Brant, Haldimand, Norfolk, Hamilton, and Halton, these cafés provide an opportunity for you to socialize with other people, exchange information and experiences, and enjoy dementia-friendly activities together. Visit our Event Calendar to register and learn more.
