January is National Alzheimer
The Alzheimer Society of Calgary has an exciting campaign to dispel some common myths and misconceptions about people with dementia.
This January we are asking everyone in our community to do their part to make a difference. This is easy and won't take long!
Simply take a picture of yourself with an uplifting word to describe a characteristic of someone with dementia. Print out your word from our website by clicking here.
By focusing on the positives, this campaign aims to reduce stigma so that more people will be encouraged to come forward to seek support and guidance for their own journey.
Email your photos to email@example.com or upload your pictures to social media with the hashtag #yycalz and tag the Alzheimer Society of Calgary.
Through our social media channels, we will be sharing the pictures that we receive throughout January.
The pictures will be compiled into a video that will be shared at the end of the month.
