Hearts Linked by Courage by Alzheimer Society of York Region represents a thoughtful and diverse compilation from a variety of generous contributors, reminding us that this disease knows no boundaries. To a large degree, anyone can be affected, and the road is often long and arduous on many fronts. I believe by continuing to educate ourselves and engage in caring conversations about a disease that affects so many, we can help to shift the narrative. Those who are living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias are so much more than their disease.
It’s a sacred opportunity to rest, to connect more deeply to life, to ourselves and others, and to be an example to our loved ones including children of all ages, and to our community. Partnering with Hospice Georgina, we are giving away two of our beautiful e-books in the Hearts Linked by Courage collection. Our goal with this book series is to provide hope and encouragement through all the brave stories shared… It’s time now more than ever, to use our words, thoughts, and deeds for good. Words can inspire, build confidence, and even exude the warmth of an embrace. Let’s pass it on and pay it forward.
