Dear Friend,

This May, will you walk 10,500 steps for the 10,500 people living with dementia in Simcoe County and raise funds to support the critical programs and services offered by the Alzheimer Society of Simcoe County?

Join us on Sunday, May 29th at Simcoe County Museum where we can walk together for the first time since May 2019 and celebrate everyone who walked during the month of May. It will be a fun-filled, family-friendly event featuring local entertainment, vendors, food, and more. If you would like to be a vendor or make a product donation, contact us below.

Living Well

Stress. It’s a part of everyone’s life. It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, working or retired, we all experience it. While we have a negative notion about stress, it’s not all bad. Stress pushes us to perform, whether it be physical or mental. Exercise is a form of physical stress, working our body to make it stronger. And without the stress of deadlines, it can be hard to get things done. Source: Heart and Stroke Foundation

National Volunteer Week

April 24-30, 2022: This year’s theme is Volunteering Is Empathy in Action.

Empathy is a quality that can help people relate to others and build awareness around different experiences. It connects people in ideas and actions and helps create bonds forged in common goals and aspirations. Volunteering helps us develop empathy, to see the world through the eyes of others.
