On the island of Montreal, 33,000 people currently live with Alzheimer’s disease or a related disorder and in less than 15 years, the number of people affected will increase to 50,000.

A donation of: 

$150 will cover the cost of a stimulation kit used by the Society`s specialists to engage the person living with dementia in therapeutic activities in the comfort of their own home 

$500 will provide 20 hours of counseling, to individuals or families, from the Society’s professional counsellors 

$1,000 would allow the Society to diversify its programming for people with dementia by adding monthly music therapy workshops. Music has been proven to be a powerful tool in helping people with dementia communicate, connect with past memories, and experience positive emotions.
