About Alzheimer Society of Ontario:
Founded in 1983, the Alzheimer Society of Ontario (ALZO) is one of thirteen provincial Alzheimer Societies working with the national Alzheimer Society of Canada toward a common goal of a world without dementia. ALZO runs care and education programs for people affected by dementia and funds research projects studying treatments and cures for the disease.
Most of the Alzheimer Society of Ontario's program spending goes to funding dementia research through the national Alzheimer Society Research Program (ASRP). The program receives funding from all provincial Alzheimer Societies, the national Alzheimer Society and outside donors. ASRP gives grants to research projects that either study treatments and cures for dementia or investigate issues that lower the quality of life for people affected by dementia. In 2015, ASRP gave out 40 grants and awards nationally. ALZO's website provides background information for 18 researchers in Ontario that received funding from ASRP.
The Alzheimer Society of Ontario works with the provincial government and advocates for better support services and policies for people living with dementia and their families. Together, the Ontario Government and ALZO are developing an Ontario Dementia Strategy. To contribute to creating the strategy, ALZO reports that its Dementia Champions advocacy program reached 107 members of provincial parliament in 2015.
BrainXchange is another major program run by the Alzheimer Society of Ontario. The program connects researchers, educators, care providers and policy workers so that they can share and access all existing knowledge on dementia. ALZO believes that this 'knowledge exchange and transfer' approach improves healthcare and caregiver practices, policy-making decisions and research approaches so that people affected by dementia can receive better help.
