Board of directors

ANNE HENNESSY

“Dementia frequently leads to a long slow loss of one’s loved one. This is especially challenging for the carer or caregiver.

Caregivers are my heroes. As a longtime psychiatrist to the elderly, and having had direct experience of the impact of dementia on my family, I’m delighted to contribute to the board of The Dementia Society!”

SCOTT KUEHN
Vice-Chair

“I have seen the toll dementia can take on families, with several close relatives enduring long battles with dementia. The Dementia Society fulfills a critical role supporting those suffering from dementia, whether directly or indirectly, and it is an honor to serve as a member of this organization.”

ZAINEB AL-KUTOBY

”I have had several family members who have lived with dementia, it was not easy, but we all can learn from each other's experiences.”

LOUISE LARAMÉE
Secretary

“As a cardiologist, I spent my career looking after vascular disease. My mother had dementia and I am very grateful for all the support, programs and expertise of The Dementia Society. She was fully supported in French, her mother tongue. I joined the Board because I wanted to give back in any capacity that I can.”

PAUL MORTON
TREASURER

“My dad had dementia for seven years, and The Dementia Society was a huge help for our family. I want to do as much as I can to help other families in Ottawa who are going through a similar experience.”

CYNTHIA MACKAY

“In 2005 my husband’s Opa was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Luckily I was able to connect with the DSORC and was reassured right away. I am proud to be part of this group.”

MIKE LUPIANO

“The Dementia Society has the staff and the experience to help families and caregivers with much needed guidance, during an extremely difficult emotional phase of life.”

LYNDA COLLEY
CHAIRPERSON

“I am so grateful for the support our family received from DSORC and I know firsthand how essential the service is that the Society provides to families in our area.”
