Why Support the Alzheimer Society of Montreal and Its Mission?

In Quebec, nearly 170,000 people are living with Alzheimer’s disease or a related neurocognitive disorder, including over 35,000 Montrealers. 

The number of people with cognitive disorders could increase by 145% over the next 25 years, according to the latest report by Alzheimer Canada. As a result, 360,200 Quebecers will be diagnosed with a form of dementia by 2050.

We anticipate that the demand for our programs, counselling services, respite and stimulation services, training, and education will grow significantly over the next few years. Given this situation, there is an urgent need to raise public awareness on the importance of fundraising, through events such as the Walk for Alzheimer's, in order to increase our services.

Last year, thanks to the various programs and services offered at our various service points across the island of Montreal, we were able to reach over 3,000 Montrealers living with cognitive disorders, as well as caregivers, healthcare workers and organizations. We are proud of this accomplishment!

The Alzheimer Society of Montreal is fortunate to benefit from grants, (which represent  approximately 30% of its budget) in order to accomplish its mission. We also count on the generosity of donors like you to ensure the continuity of our services. Our goal is to offer more services to Montrealers struggling with Alzheimer’s disease by doubling our capacity for action. To meet this challenge, we must double our efforts!

Alzheimer’s disease affects everyone. Help us support twice as many Montrealers living with dementia and their caregivers today! Register to the Walk for Alzheimer's now or make a donation !
