The Alzheimer’s Society has been a great resource for our family on this journey through the disease with my Dad.
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.
