The Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan is dedicated to improving the lives of those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. With 10 or more people in Saskatchewan developing dementia every 24 hours and an estimated 60% living in the community, it is essential that our communities become more inclusive and accessible for people living with dementia and their care partners.
Our dementia friendly initiatives focus on empowering and engaging communities of all types and sizes to become more dementia friendly by learning about dementia, reducing stigma, and building understanding. We also believe it is critical that we inform the public about the scale and nature of dementia and empower individuals to seek an early diagnosis.
We help individuals and communities learn more about dementia and understand how to become more supportive, accessible and inclusive for those affected by it. By learning more, you can make a difference in your community.
Everyone has a role to play ensuring our province is a more dementia friendly place for people living with dementia and their care partners.
