The Dementia Society of Ottawa and Renfrew County supports people living with dementia, their caregivers and their families. No one should face dementia alone.
Donors like you help us to provide:
- Guidance and support
- Social programs and peer engagement
- Information and resources
For our clients, this is a particularly challenging time as being isolated at home means no respite nor access to the meaningful activities that are so important to living well with dementia. The need for our services has never been greater, and we have pivoted to delivering our vital programs and services virtually and remotely.
While the need has never been greater, we’ve also had to put the Walk for Dementia, our major fundraising event held in May each year, on hold. The Walk for Dementia averages $250,000 annually in contributions.
Donations to the COVID-19 Fundraising Drive will help to ensure that people living with dementia and their caregivers continue to receive the critical support they need at this difficult time. Thank you!
