Stony Plain Community and Social Development supports Alzheimer's Awareness Month

January is Alzheimer's Awareness Month. The Town of Stony Plain wants everyone to know Alzheimer’s disease is not a normal part of aging. We are encouraging citizens to learn more about dementia and its stark impact on Canadians. Building on the Stony Plain Together We Shine Inclusion priority, Stony Plain Community and Social Development has a specific focus on Dementia with the Dementia Connections Project. By working collaboratively, the goal is to create and maintain inclusive and welcoming dementia-friendly environments within the Tri Region.
