In 2017, we continued to see growth and participation from the families we serve raising over $175,000! We are excited to see what we can accomplish in 2018!
Fund development activities, public donations, and the support of local businesses and organizations are essential to maintaining current programs and services.
This support also enables us to expand these existing programs and services to meet the ever-increasing needs in New Brunswick.
We provide quality programs and services to those diagnosed, and to their families and care providers. We inform government of the issues that are important to New Brunswickers living with dementia, and advocate for change.
We fund both biomedical and quality of life research to ensure that we are providing help for today, and hope for tomorrow.
As the second oldest population in Canada, New Brunswickers will be especially impacted by the rising tide of dementia:
- 15,000 New Brunswickers currently have Alzheimer’s or a related dementia
- Within the next year, over 2,947 additional New Brunswickers will develop dementia which is 7 people per day just in New Brunswick alone
- By 2038, that number will increase to 15 people each and every day
- 13% of whom are under the age of 65.
