Dementia is more than just numbers; it's your friends and neighbours, people you see every day in your community.

Currently in Grey-Bruce, there are over 4000 people living with dementia. However, approximately 2 out of 3 people in Grey-Bruce experiencing memory loss or Cognitive Impairment don't seek a diagnosis, which means that the true number may be significantly higher -- closer to 11 000 people.

The Alzheimer Society Grey-Bruce will be holding a 3 part series on May 9th, 16th, and 23rd, from 1:30pm-3:30pm at St.Paul's Anglican Church, 248 High St, Southampton.

Presented by Sandra Hong, Public Education Coordinator, for the Alzheimer Society Grey-Bruce, the three part series will be an opportunity for participants to understand the diagnosis and the change individuals experience as well as how to support and connect with others.

There is no charge for this series but registration with the Alzheimer Society is recommended, in order to prepare materials for the number attending.

For information #InItForALZ and to register please contact The Alzheimer Society at 519-376-7230 or 1-800-265-9013 or email shong@alzheimergreybruce.com
