The lo­cal Alzheimer So­ci­ety is meet­ing with area MPPs to dis­cuss the need for a ful­ly­funded On­tario De­men­tia Strat­egy.

The meet­ings, which started on Wed­nes­day with Brant MPP Dave Le­vac, will fea­ture lo­cal con­stituents liv­ing with de­men­tia telling their sto­ries about why fund­ing for this strat­egy is so im­por­tant.

The Alzheimer So­ci­ety of Brant, Haldimand Nor­folk, Hamil­ton and Hal­ton is meet­ing with Hamil­ton MPPs on Fri­day and with Hal­ton MPPs next week.

The so­ci­ety says there are more than 28,000 res­i­dents liv­ing with de­men­tia in the area. More than half of them live in the com­mu­nity.
