Right now, 747,000 Canadians have cognitive impairment, including dementia.
By 2031, this number will reach 1.4 million. By 2040, the economic burden of dementia will skyrocket to $293 billion per year.
There is no way to prevent Alzheimer's disease, although growing evidence suggests that you can reduce your risk by staying socially and mentally active, adopting a healthy lifestyle and protecting your head from injury.
At the Alzheimer Society, our vision is a world without Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.
Help us achieve that vision and continue to provide Help for Today. Hope for Tomorrow...®
