Prince George residents invited to help redefine dementia narrative

 January 1 marks the beginning of Alzheimer’s Awareness Month 2024. The Alzheimer Society of B.C. invites Prince George residents to help challenge dementia stigma. While one in two British Columbians believe that a dementia diagnosis means the end of a meaningful life, Alzheimer’s Awareness Month is an opportunity to spotlight people on the dementia journey who continue to find joy and purpose.

Alzheimer Society of B.C. programs emphasize living well and forging new community connections, empowering people through self-advocacy. Local research reveals the overwhelming sense of hopelessness faced by people with dementia and their caregivers. The organization aims to break down that stigma, showcasing the myriad of ways someone can lead a fulfilling life even with dementia.

Community support empowers the Alzheimer Society of B.C. to help people navigate this journey. This holiday season, all donations made until December 31 will be matched up to $65,000, doubling your impact.

The Alzheimer Society of B.C. connects people affected by dementia to support and education at any point in the disease through First Link® dementia support.
