Past Event: Finances & Dementia


Finances and Dementia – Advice for the Journey – WEBINAR Hosted on Thursday, April 20th 

Today, there are more than 600,000 people living with dementia in Canada. By 2030, we can expect this number to be close to 1 million. Apart from the emotional and mental health impact, costs for people with dementia are 5.5 times greater than for individuals who have not been diagnosed with the condition.

The seniors, parents and grandparents of our communities often face unique financial challenges that come with age. For those facing the journey with dementia, the need for advice has never been greater.

Hosted by Christine Van Cauwenberghe, Head of Financial Planning, IG Wealth Management, and Dr. Sarah Main, Research Scientist, Alzheimer Society of Canada. 

Together they provided:

  1. Advice for caregivers and people living with dementia
  2. Tax considerations and resources available for Canadians
