Of special interest
The first provincial meeting for Early On-Set Alzheimers was held in Red Deer Saturday Sept 14/14 and people attended from around the province. Since then, reps from Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge and Red Deer have met a few times through Skype and worked to move forward with a plan to advocate for our loved ones, our families and ourselves. We now call ourselves Early Onset Dementia Alberta (EODA). Anyone interested in knowing more about our group may contact us via this website or through our support groups in each community.

You can email me and I can send a copy to you or you can just make your own in a program like Publisher. Nice little design, simple, but when you are in a situation where people seem confused it could come in handy to be able to just hand to someone.
