Raise Your Voice for Elections 2019


Manitobans vote on September 10. Now is the time to talk to your candidates about the needs of people like Kerri, Sylvia and Gavin.

We’ve identified three areas where the Government of Manitoba can help families living with dementia:

First Link® – so that people like Kerri and her family can continue to receive support and services provided by the Alzheimer Society.
Home Care – so that Sylvia and her husband Don – and others in their situation – can receive better home care options.
Staff Training – so that Gavin, and others who have family members in care, receive compassion and respect from staff.
