Your Brain Health is our priority
A new case of dementia is diagnosed every four seconds worldwide, making it one of the most pressing health concerns of our era.
- Up to 10 per cent of cases of dementia begin before age 65.
- 1 in 11 Canadians over the age of 65 has dementia.
- By 2040, family caregivers in Canada will spend a staggering 2 billion unpaid hours per year looking after someone with cognitive impairment, including dementia.*
No one can predict the future – and dementia could affect any one of us. It’s a devastating diagnosis for any family.
At Baycrest, brain health has been our focus for decades. Our expertise and the combination of research, education and care for older adults – at every stage – allows us to continually move forward and revolutionize the way we age. We envision a future in which the memories of a lifetime last a lifetime.
Your contribution will help to ensure that Baycrest is here and ready to help everyone who needs us. Because of you, we can preserve and enhance the cognitive, physical and emotional well–being of older adults.
