Alzheimer Society of Simcoe County
DONATE

Dear Supporter,

Every three seconds, someone in the world is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.  

This Giving Tuesday, we are asking you to show your support for all the people in your community that are impacted by Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias by donating to the Alzheimer Society of Simcoe County.  

The gift you make this Giving Tuesday will stay local and you will be able to see the immediate impact your contribution makes through our crucial education, counselling, and social recreation programs people living with dementia need most.

Keeping Safety in Mind

As we have moved back to in-person programs, we continue to do all we can to reduce the risk of COVID transmission. Participants are reminded to self screen and stay home if they are feeling unwell and all of our environments are mask friendly.  We are also closely watching the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit’s Community Risk level and will modify our programs further as the risk level changes.  We want to see you at our programs and we want you to feel safe doing so.
