About ALZHEIMER SOCIETY OF ELGIN - ST. THOMAS
The Alzheimer Society Elgin - St. Thomas is a not-for-profit health service organization and a registered charity, governed by a
board of directors. The Society was incorporated in 1992 to meet the needs of people with Alzheimer's disease and
other dementias and those who provide care. We do this by providing support, information and education at all
stages of the disease, by funding research and advocating for better dementia care services. The Society is
partially funded by the South West Local Health Integration Network, we depend on the generosity of our partners, our community
donors and volunteers who provide the time, talent and resources that we need to support those dealing with
dementia, and those who love and care for them. Giving has never been easier now that we can accept secure
online donations with the assistance of CanadHelps.org. Donations will go towards our local programs and will help
us to continue to make a difference in the quality of life for people and caregivers in our community affected by
Alzheimer's disease and other dementias.
