Let's act together to Prioritize Dementia Prevention
Hope for Dementia is a federally registered charitable organization whose mission is to support the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of dementia and other cognitive disorders.

Hope for Dementia has created a petition asking the Government of Québec to declare dementia prevention a healthcare priority and to adopt strategies to:

• Reduce avoidable diagnoses by promoting educational programs and early detection;

• Reverse the symptoms of mild cognitive dementia by providing access to clinical trials financed by a dedicated public/private sector fund.
