January is . . . Alzheimer Awareness Month

Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia in Canada. It is a progressive and irreversible disease. Sadly, there is no cure – and just as troubling, the number of Canadians who are living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia is expected to double by 2031.

While the main risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease is age, it is also important to understand that Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of aging. Younger people, in their 40s or 50s, have been diagnosed with the early onset form of the disease.

Many countries around the world are facing a similar situation. That is why the Government of Canada has joined its G7 partners in addressing this growing challenge. Together, we committed to coordinate international efforts with an aim to find a cure or disease-modifying treatment for dementia by 2025.

 

January is also Soup & Hot Tea Month

 Do your mind, body & soul some good by enjoying the warmth and comfort

of a steaming mug with family & friends!
