Local Alzheimer Society launches intergenerational program with First
An innovative program developed by the Alzheimer Society London and Middlesex
is now being launched with First Nations seniors and students in London and area.
The Generation LinkTM
program pairs high school, college or university students with
seniors, and together they create a scrapbook or 'memorybook' of the senior's
photographs and mementos. At the end of the 12-week program, each memorybook is
presented to an audience of family members and loved ones.
First Nations students interested in participating can contact
the Alzheimer's Society's volunteer coordinator, Ellen Cannon, at
