Alzheimer's Awareness Month

With this month being Alzheimer’s Awareness Month, the Alzheimer’s Society of Manitoba wants people to share their experience and stories on how the disease impacted their life.

 

Alzheimer’s disease is a form of dementia, and is a brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills that can severely impact the way a person can live their life.

 

The organization’s CEO, Wendy Schettler, says that many people have preconceived notions about that disease, and while it can take a toll on families who have a member with Alzheimer’s, many people with the disease can still lead fulfilling lives.

 

Schettler wants people to think about what dementia means to them and how they can support people with the disease to live well and be a part of the community.
