Dementia is a progressive disease, often described as a journey along a winding pathway. But you don't need to travel alone!
Dementia Journey is your link to an in-depth look at the different stages of Alzheimer's disease and related types of dementia. Through the stories of other British Columbians living with the disease, you'll be guided to valuable information and resources across the Province.
Whether you have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or another type of dementia, have a friend or loved one with the disease, or simply want to learn more, you'll find it on the Dementia Journey Web site.
