The Alzheimer Society of Peel

Our grads are highly sought-after. In fact, Northridge Long-term care Centre in Oakville created a position specifically with our alumni in mind. The Alzheimer Society of Peel grants multiple awards each year to our students in the Faculty of Applied Health & Community Studies. The Society has been giving to Sheridan since 2002.

For those seniors who are unable to stay in their homes, SSW-Gerontology graduates are particularly skilled in helping older Canadians and their families make the transition into long-term care, which often involves feelings of guilt, loss, and separation anxiety. 

The Alzheimer Society awards acknowledge our talented students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievement.
