About the Alzheimer Society

The Alzheimer Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories exists to: heighten awareness about Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia; provide support services; and, support research into the cause and a cure for this disease.

Today in Alberta some 40,000 people have dementia, with 17% of these having been diagnosed under the age of 65. This gives Alberta the highest prevalence of early onset in Canada. Alzheimer’s disease at this point in time has no known cause or cure. Until a cure is found, our Society is here to help and provide support to those impacted by the disease.

The Society’s Programs and Services include:
  • Individual care and planning consultations
  • Support groups and family programs
  • Onsite information and community referrals
  • Public education and information sessions
  • Safely Home TM (Wandering registry)
