Congratulations to the newly elected provincial government. We look forward to working with the Honourable Greg Selinger and the Minister of Health to ensure that Manitobans with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia and their families have access to the care they deserve.
The NDP has commited to three significant issues that affect the health and well-being of people touched by dementia. They have promised to:
More than 19,500 people in Manitoba have Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia and one in three Manitobans has a family member or close personal friend with this disease. We look forward to working with the government on these three important initiatives, so that we can better the lives of the people we serve.
To become a dementia care champion you can write or email, make a phone call, or use Facebook/Twitter to contact our political leaders to ask them the questions that are important to you.
