Alzheimer's Awareness Month - January 2016

Alzheimer's Awareness Month - January 2016

Alzheimer’s Disease currently directly affects ~800,000 Canadians. This number is expected to more than double in the next 15 years. We are raising awareness for Alzheimer’s Awareness Month in this week's blog post because Alzheimer’s Disease does not only affect the individual who is diagnosed, but their family, friends and communities. Alzheimer’s affects the workplace as these people are our colleagues and friends. In this post we will highlight information on Alzheimer’s awareness to help improve the mental health of our community.
