On March 11, starting shortly after 1 p.m., 40 Atlantic Police Academy cadets will be out in full force in the Summerside area to canvas door-to-door for the Alzheimer Society of P.E.I.

This service is instrumental for the 2,537 Islanders diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. Supporting the Alzheimer Society of P.E.I.’s door-to-door campaign will contribute to programs and services that help people in this province, as well as crucial research initiatives.

“We are grateful to the support of all our volunteers across P.E.I. and, in particular, today we are thankful to our partnership with the Atlantic Police Academy cadets under the stewardship of Inspector Wayne Rudderham,” says Corrine Hendricken-Eldershaw, CEO, Alzheimer Society of P.E.I.

In addition to canvassing, cadets receive education from the society about MedicAlert Safely Home, a nationwide registry developed by the Alzheimer Society, in partnership with the RCMP, that assists in finding a person who is lost and returning them safely to their home.
