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 don't know what I'd do without Club 36! It really gives me the break I need to be able to keep him at home a little longer.
Thank you to everyone who came out to the 2019 IG Wealth Management Alzheimer Walk and Run!!
Over 1,500 people came out and raised over $275,000!
As we head into our 30th year in 2020, we are looking forward to continuing that momentum!
Stay tuned for news and updates and how you can get involved in the 2020 event.
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.
