Living with Dementia

Research is gaining an understanding of the healthy aging of the human body and mind.

Genetics and brain trauma have been shown to have a direct correlation in developing dementia. However a healthy diet including exercising throughout life has shown to decrease the incidence.

Legendary ice hockey player Gordie Howe devoted much of his post-retirement years supporting research into dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. AMG are proud to host the Gordie Howe Centre for Alzheimer’s Research and Education Society (Gordie Howe C.A.R.E.S.) in Calgary, and to gain invaluable insights from the Center’s work for our patients and Life Centre residents.

Gordie Howe’s son Marty writes:

“When a family member is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or a memory loss illness, the whole family suffers.

Both our Mother and Father have been stricken with different types of dementia.

It has been a challenge for our family to see the effect that dementia has had on our parents. Given the loss of memory changes, there have been times when our family has missed out on special occasions and the memories.

The impact this disease has had on our family is the prime motivation to assist others by lending our father’s name, Gordie Howe, to help fund the research & education for both the cause and the potential cures for this debilitating disease of memory loss.”

Our mission at AMG and The Manor Village Life Centers will be to continue to drive this Center forward to honour Gordie as both a great player and a champion for dementia research.
