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.
The Alzheimer’s Society has been a great resource for our family on this journey through the disease with my Dad.
Come out on Sunday, October 7 for the 28th annual Investors Group Alzheimer Walk and Run.
Not alone. Not silent.
Come out and show that we are no longer going to do this alone.
There are resources for everyone.
More than 1400 participants joined in last year and raised over $300,000
Let’s keep the momentum going.
5 km walk 5km run and 10 km run
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.
