January is Alzheimer's Awareness Month

The Month of January is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month.

Research has shown that by 2030 almost 1 million Canadians will be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and 1 in 5 Canadians have experienced caring for someone living with dementia.

 

Liz McLeod of the Alzheimer’s Society of Manitoba shares how they offer support for those with an Alzheimer's diagnosis.

 

 

 

 

McLeod also shared why studying and learning about Alzheimer's benefits all of us.

 

 

 

 

Almost 20,000 Manitobans are living with Alzheimer's and that number is expected to grow to over 40,000 by 2050.
