There’s a hidden path that over 1,300 Calgarians and their families walk daily. It’s a path that emerges as early as one’s 40s, 50s and 60s. Young onset dementia ends careers, shatters lives, and numbs futures.
In the Calgary area, there is no relevant daytime support designed for the unique needs of families living this reality. There is an urgent need to fill this gap.
YouQuest is LAUNCHING on September 20, 2018!
A non-profit, YouQuest is Calgary’s first wellness community where people with young onset dementia enjoy an active and rewarding quality of life. Cindy & John tell us why it matters.
