Ontario recognizes January as Alzheimer Awareness Month
The effects of Alzheimer’s disease, other dementias and neurological conditions can cause serious safety concerns that society cannot ignore. This January, we acknowledge the many Ontarians affected by these conditions, and encourage all Ontarians to learn more about the disease and how they can help those seniors and families affected.
