Careforce ends Alzheimer Cafe after successful 3-year run

On behalf of our entire team at Careforce...

To all our loyal attendees, friends, sponsors, and supporters,

On behalf of our entire team at Careforce, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being a part of our Alzheimer Cafe (with many of you being involved since its inception in October 2011). Without your engagement over the past three years, our 34 monthly cafes would not have been successful and we would not have made such a positive impact in the community.

In spite of our fun and success, Careforce has decided that it is now time to look for new and fresh ways to support families affected by Alzheimer’s and other dementia. For that reason, our last Alzheimer Cafe was held on Tuesday, December 9, 2014.

Although this was a difficult decision to make, we feel that the time is right to step back and discuss new possibilities with our partners. We believe now – as we always have – that families affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia require increased community supports.

Please call us at any time if you wish to talk about Alzheimer’s or dementia, and please also consider contacting the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia at 902-422-7961 and Caregivers Nova Scotia at 902-421-7390. They may be able to offer support as well.

In the meantime, Careforce will make a financial donation to the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia on behalf of everyone who has participated in our Cafe.
