I expected a few brochures - and I left the office with hope.
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.
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 felt a sense of peace in knowing I was not alone, and I had somewhere to turn when I needed it. You have enabled me to better understand and support my husband in all that he is experiencing. I'm so grateful for your support.
