Chatham-Kent now has over 3,000 people who have dementia.
This translates to 3% of our population, with the prevalence of dementia rapidly increasing.
In response to this increase, the Alzheimer Society of Chatham-Kent is not only in a state of unprecedented growth but is also working with our partners in the development of the new Ontario Health Teams.
We receive significant funding through the Ministry of Health and are recognized for our expertise, high quality programming and collaborative spirit.
