World Alzheimer's Day 

Sept 21 marked World Alzheimer’s Day, and Conservative MP Lisa Raitt used the opportunity to speak candidly about her own experience with the disease. Raitt's husband was recently diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's, and as she states, "it’s kind of opened [her] eyes to the struggles that Canadian families have" when a loved one requires care.

In addition to speaking openly about her husband's diagnosis, "Raitt went on to pay tribute to the caregivers, service providers and others who work 'to lessen the burden of those suffering from this disease,' before pausing, then tearfully declaring, “I thank you from the bottom of my heart.'”

On Saturday night, after finding him improbably 34 years ago, Miller lost the man she describes as her soulmate.

“The nurses up there were so good with Dougald. They were so upset, they were crying last night. They’ve looked after Dougald for 15 years. I can’t say enough good things about them,” she said. (Read More)                       


 For 20 Years, Edmonton's CHOICE Programs have been quietly keeping frail seniors out of  hospitals, emergency rooms and long-term care - and in their homes where they prefer to age. Expansion of the program could do even more to ease the pressure on the health system as well as lighten the load for care givers in need of support. (Read More)
