The need to prevent and manage dementia in Canada is critical. In 2011, 747,000 Canadians lived with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias (ADRD). This amounted to 14.9 per cent of Canadians 65 and older (Alzheimer Society, 2012). By 2031, the number of Canadians living with dementia will increase to 1.4 million (Alzheimer Society, 2012). Dementia does not discriminate. It impacts people of all socioeconomic classes, genders, ethnicities, and is not just a disease of older persons. For example, roughly 1 in 1000 people under the age of 65 develop dementia (Alzheimer Society Canada, 2015).
