“I am truly honoured to have been selected to receive a research grant from the Alzheimer Society of Brant, Haldimand Norfolk, Hamilton and Halton,” says Yous. “This grant will provide me with excellent research support and help me connect with caregivers of people living with dementia in the local community. I am thrilled to start working with the Alzheimer Society to implement my research.”
Yous works as a registered nurse in long term care and is a research trainee at the Aging, Community and Health Research Unit (ACHRU). She is also a volunteer at her local Alzheimer Society.
