Our mission at the Gordie Howe Center for Alzheimer's Research and Education Society (C.A.R.E.S.) is to improve the lives of those impacted by Alzheimers disease and dementia related behaviour. By providing education, caregivers, support and funding, the Gordie Howe C.A.R.E.S. Initiative hopes to drive greater awareness and understanding of Alzheimer's.
We will approach this critical objective in four, primary ways:
Education: Help advance Alzheimer's disease education for the public through speaking events, newsletters and counselling sessions.
Seminars: Train first responders such as police, fire, EMS and social workers to assist those afflicted with Alzheimer's disease by recognizing and understanding dementia related behaviours.
Adult Day Support Program (ADSP): Provide relief and support for those affected by Alzheimer's disease, including the aged and family members, through day support programs that include stimulating activities and trained personnel.
Research Initiatives: Help fund research focused on Alzheimer's disease and dementia related behaviours, including causes and prevention.
