Featured Member: Alzheimer Society of Ottawa & Renfrew County

January is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month!

We’re pleased to introduce to you our very own member the Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County.

Alzheimer’s disease, or related dementia, affects an estimated 500,000 Canadians, and statistics predict that this number will double within a generation. Fortunately, for every person living with Alzheimer’s disease, there are also many family members and friends providing care and support.

The Alzheimer Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County is hosting the 2013 Walk for Memories on January 27th, 2013. Last year, they raised over $200,000 through this event. Get involved with this event!
