January is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month.
Laura-Lynn Bourassa is the Manager of Education and Support Programs with the Alzheimer’s Society of Simcoe County
She says there is no one-true cause of the neural degenerative disease and there is no cure.
It is estimated that close to 9200 people over the age of 65 in Simcoe County are living with dementia.
The aim of the campaign is to change attitudes towards the disease and those living with it.
