Do not say that in June you're absentminded by a little MaGee.

"I'm not afraid to say someone with dementia," Windsor's 80-year-old woman said this week. "Sometimes you say someone and they will say" Oh, no, no, I always forgot all things, and I say it's not the same. "You forgot about things. He came back to you. No pain."

Regardless of talking about dementia, not being afraid to understand or understand democracy, and your inability to be something like Alzheimer's disease, it is not helpful to live a million Canadians with dementia.

January is Alzheimer's Awareness Month and this year focuses on people with dementia campaign, including Alzheimer's disease, and eliminating stigma.

Hundreds of million Canadian doctors spoke of dementia talking about dementia, a 2017 online survey by the Alzheimer's Association. 30% of the deceased said they had jokes related to dementia.

Four Canadians said they were ashamed or embarrassed to have dementia.

Do not forget about your forgetfulness about Alzheimer's disease, said Peggy Winch, Managing Fund Development and Community Commitment at Windsor and Essex County Alzheimer's Association.

"You're not funny" Oh, that's what I had to be cancer, "he said." This is a disease and it's not a joke. "

Everyone has dementia and their progress is different, he said. Some are driving and working.

"People still live dementia," Winch said.

If you do not tell anyone, you will cut off from society, said MaGe found their friends.

MaGee is experiencing blood flow in vascular dementia caused by her brain. It was diagnosed in 2012. Suddenly he did not know where he was in his apartment. There is no cure, it has limited short-term memory, and does not know how quickly his dementia will be.

However, Cleveland's husband and his husband remain. He had to stop serving the convent at some point because he could not remember what he should do next year to clean the silver bucket in the church of Asuncion. The couple goes to a souvenir cafe at the Ojibway Nature Center; Persons living with dementia and caregivers hang up. She wants to encourage her to get back to her, when someone put their arms around her for the first time and said: "You'll be fine."

"I can not stay upset, even though I am. I can not stop it," said his first diagnosis in the first year.

MaGee and her husband return to Cuba and go back. He can not remember the details of the trip later but he will enjoy it.

Ron Robert's London story is a nationally prominent "Yeah. I have a dementia to live this month."

81 year old Alzheimer's disease lives. It was diagnosed three years ago.

Robert took Wilfrid Laurier University's political science course and went from D. Next year he is studying at the King's College in London and discussing the benefits of education for people with disabilities.

"Life has many blows on the way. My dementia is just one of those blows. You do not give up occasionally you will enter a barrier," he said.


More than half a million million people live in dementia, a figure that is expected to reach a million dollars to 15 years.

7,480 Windsor and Essex residents have dementia.

In London, there are 8,500 people living in dementia.
