Since 1978, the Alzheimer Society has been the leading nationwide not-for-profit health organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for Canadians affected by Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, and to advance the search for the cause and cure.

The role of the Alzheimer Society is to offer support, information and education to people with dementia, their families and their caregivers, to increase public awareness of dementia, to promote research, and to advocate for services that respect the dignity of the individual.

Behind every person with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, there are hundreds of people dedicated to helping. Active in communities right across Canada, the Society has programs and services near everyone.
