National Alzheimer Awareness Month 2019

National Alzheimer Awareness Month 2019


You can make a difference!


We are re-framing the conversation about dementia.

We're collecting pictures of people throughout our community holding positive words to describe someone living with dementia. 

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.

We are asking that everyone in our community to take a moment and do their part.


It won't take long!

Simply take a picture with one of the words available to download on this page and send it to us.

After you’ve taken a picture of

yourself with your word, email it to or upload it to social media with the hashtag #yycalz and tag us.

Throughout January, we will be sharing all of the photos we receive and at the end of the month, all of these photos will be compiled into a video.
