    “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.”

    ” I had several family members who lived dementia, it was not easy but we all can learn for each other experiences.”

  • Scott Kuehn

    “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.”

    “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!”
