About Alzheimer Society of B.C.:
Founded in 1981, Alzheimer Society of B.C. (AZBC) works across the province to alleviate the personal and social consequences of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, to promote public awareness and to search for the causes and the cures. The Alzheimer Society helps by providing information, resources, education, support and counselling.
AZBC offers the First Link program, which connects individuals and families affected by Alzheimer's disease or another dementia with services and support as soon as possible after diagnosis. Minds in Motion, is a fitness and social program for people experiencing early stage memory loss due to Alzheimer's disease or another dementia. A certified fitness instructor conducts the fitness portion of the program, and a facilitator ensures participants are welcomed and involved in activities such as billiards, Wii and ping pong, or just enjoying social time and light refreshments, in a relaxed atmosphere. AZBC connects people experiencing Alzheimer's through its support groups program and provides education resources to people facing dementia.
AZBC also supports research directed at finding the cure for Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, and improving the lives of individuals and families in the province who are living with dementia.
Government funding constituted 23% of total revenue in F2014. The administrative costs are 10% of revenues and fundraising costs are 25% of donations. The reserves of $11.9m cover the program costs 2.3 times.
