Providing care for an aging or ill loved one is a difficult task. A recent study from the Mental Health Commission of Canada found that of the 5.5 million Canadian adults acting as caregivers, approximately 17% reported caregiver related stress. With the aging population and dementia and Alzheimer’s numbers rising, it is more important than ever for caregivers to ensure that while they are providing the best for their loved ones, they are also caring for themselves. A new facility in Markham Ontario has been launched to do just that. Memory and Company is a private health club with upscale amenities to provide those with Alzheimer’s and related dementias a safe place to be cared for, stay social and remain active while primary caregivers work or enjoy some much needed respite. Check out more about Memory and Company in this recent CTV news piece.
