At the end of this year of COVID outbreaks, extreme weather and evacuations, people in the Central Kootenay region living with dementia and their caregivers face more challenges than ever before. It’s never been more important to support them.

The Alzheimer Society of B.C. is gearing up for Alzheimer’s Awareness Month in January 2022. 

Residents will have the chance to hear the stories of community members affected by dementia and learn how they can show up for the people in their own lives who are affected by the disease.

In the meantime, people in the area affected by dementia still need your help. At a time when kindness is needed more than ever, gifts made to the Alzheimer Society of B.C. will go twice as far to fund critical programs and services for people around the province who are affected by dementia. Thanks to a group of generous donors, every donation made up to December 31 will be matched up to $85,000.

The Alzheimer Society of B.C. connects people living with dementia, their caregivers and family members to support and education at any point in the disease through First Link® dementia support.

Central Kootenay  residents can connect to support by asking their health-care provider for a referral or by calling the First Link® Dementia Helpline at 1-800-936-6033.
