Help and Support
Active across Canada, each Alzheimer Society offers programs and support services. No matter where you live in Canada, you will be able access education, resources and support that can address your needs.
The Alzheimer Society identifies, develops and pushes forward dementia-focused and dementia-friendly initiatives and campaigns across the country that alleviate the personal and social consequences of dementia.
Through the Alzheimer Society, people living with dementia, caregivers, families and others affected by dementia can make their voices heard and their experiences known.
As a prominent voice in all levels of the government, we advocate for health and policy changes in your community. We are connected to partners in countries around the world as a member of Alzheimer Disease International.
Through the research we support, we seek to improve the quality of life of Canadians who are experiencing this terrible disease firsthand, including the discovery of new treatments and a cure for dementia.
The significance of the Forget Me Not symbol
- The Alzheimer Society uses the Forget Me Not flower as a symbol to represent memory loss, one of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.
- The Forget Me Not is also a reminder to remember people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, as well as their caregivers.
- The three flowers in the symbol represent the person with dementia, the caregiver and the Alzheimer Society.
