As a first step towards acceptance of the changes in my husband [after his diagnosis] I made a phone call to the Alzheimer’s Society of Calgary to sign up for a course. After explaining my intent, and before anything else was said, the person on the other end of the phone asked, “How are you doing?” So unexpected, so sincere, so compassionate, so moving. We chatted for a long time.
I hope others will understand it's OK to hurt. I am so grateful to you all for the support you have given our family through the years.
Thank you to everyone who came out for the 28th annual Investors Group Alzheimer Walk and Run!
More than 1,500 participants came out and raised over $300,000!!
Save the date for next year! October 13th, 2019
We are excited to announce that the 29th annual Investors Group Alzheimer Walk and Run will be held at the Calgary Chinese Cultural Centre. Stay tuned for more details.
2019 will also feature a 1K walk in order to make the event more accessible.
Reaching out to people at the Alzheimer Society of Calgary saved my life. They really understood, and didn’t judge me."
