Alzheimer’s Awareness

Dementia is affecting the lives of one in four Canadians daily. January is Alzheimer’s awareness month, and the Greater Toronto Area is filled with walks, workshops, activities, and tons of cool events, spreading awareness about Alzheimer’s. Our Buddy Services supports the elderly community and those living with Alzheimer’s, live with dignity and respect. We encourage the elderly population, the terminally ill, and persons with dementia to engage in the community and discover a new lease on life.

To contribute to spreading awareness, we have created a list of events, workshops, and resources taking place this month in the Greater Toronto Area. Buddy Services is here to support you, a family member or friend attend any of these events in the city.

We look forward to working with you and supporting our community through our services.
