Alzheimer Society of Durham Region is a non-profit, charitable organization that was initially founded in 1979 by a group of family caregivers under the direction of Joy Mack. In 1986, it was incorporated and received charitable status. At that time funding for family support and educational programming was received from the Ministry of Health. That funding continues to be a source of revenue for the Society and is augmented with other Ministry funding, grants, fundraising activities and donations.
