Engaging People with Early Stage Alzheimer's Disease in the Work of the Alzheimer Society

This report was the result of research conducted in 2005, motivated by The Alzheimer Society of Canada's desire to identify strategies that promote the active participation of people with early-stage dementia in our organization and our work, particularly policy, research, and service delivery.

Drawing from related literature, the experiences of people with the disease, Alzheimer Society staff, and key informants, this report examines the factors that influence individuals to volunteer and the barriers that may limit their participation.
