It makes sense for all of us to pay attention to brain health. The work being done at Baycrest has meaning for young and old alike. Scientists are working hard to find new ways to detect, prevent and treat cognitive decline.  Early or young onset dementia symptoms start before the age of 65. Currently, this form of the disease affects an estimated 16,000 people in Canada. Baycrest is devoted to improving the quality of life of older adults everywhere through the integration and application of exceptional healthcare, wellness promotion, research, and educational activities. 

Baycrest’s researchers are constantly making discoveries, including finding out that the risk of dementia rises threefold for socially isolated older adults. No matter your age, maintaining a social network can reduce the risk of dementia. We know that socializing can help to lower our risk of dementia, depression and poor health so let’s make our entire city a leader in brain health awareness – one Game Night at a time!

Our goal is to put an end to Alzheimer’s. Your funds help Baycrest care for people who are affected and find ways to preserve cognitive function. BRAIN HEALTH AFFECTS US ALL – AT EVERY AGE
