Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Club 36

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.

Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Club 36

More than 100 people came out to Fort Calgary in May to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Club 36. 

At its inception, Club 36 was one of the first dementia-specific Adult Day Programs of its kind in Canada. 

Club continues to be a person-centered program providing innovative activities for individuals with dementia and respite for caregivers. 

During the evening, an artwork was unveiled that is a collaborative effort of seven current Club members. 

Created to celebrate ‘Canada 150’, the piece is in the style of renowned Canadian artist Ted Harrison.
