We try to help with a feeling of reciprocity. […] Having someone that you don’t know saying they feel the same way you do, they experience the same way…hearing their story.
It's more human in a way when you’re sharing something and the person in front of you is saying, “Well, I dealt with that. It’s true, I felt that”

The Alzheimer Society of Montreal was the first Alzheimer Society in Quebec. Our mission is to alleviate the social and personal consequences of Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders through the development and delivery of leading-edge interventions, care and support services in Montreal. Please see our current activities below.

 

  • The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts has been offering special activities to persons living with Alzheimer's and carers since 2010 as part of the Sharing the Museum program. The Alzheimer’s Society of Montreal and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts will present their inaugural Virtual Art Links workshop in January 2021.

    Registration is now open.
  • Dance and movement, creativity, improvisation and choreographic work...This is a workshop that invites people living with Alzheimer's to explore their creative potential and let go in safety.

    Registration is now open.
  • To expand its art therapy program, the Alzheimer Society of Montreal partnered with the "What Connect Us" program to provide art therapy workshops "on the road." Now, the current context has afforded us the opportunity to offer online art therapy workshops "in the clouds."
  • Laughter yoga is a new addition to the activities offered by the Alzheimer Society of Montreal. We are delighted to be working with "Joyful Connections" to bring this fun-filled program to persons living with Alzheimer's and their carers. Come and laugh with us!

    Registration is ongoing and possible at any time during the session.
