At the start of every year, Canadian citizens celebrate Alzheimer’s Awareness Month.
Before we welcome the new month, we want to take a moment to acknowledge the importance of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. The Memoryz team is encouraging everyone to continue to bring awareness to the immediate realities of Alzheimer’s disease. It is essential to continue to amplify the experience of people living with dementia, their caregivers, and all the healthcare providers who supported them.
This disease affects millions of Canadians each year, and it is important to remain informed of the impact of this disease through relevant scientific information. The Memoryz team is encouraging individuals to check out the following links to hear the stories of people living with dementia.
- Over the past few months, the Memoryz Team has been interviewing caregivers from all walks of life to understand the caregiving experience from various perspectives. We invite you to check out our interview series on our Youtube channel

We hope the information listed above will be useful and allow individuals to form a deeper understanding of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. As you increase your knowledge about this disease, we encourage you to share this information with your friends/community.
