The Alzheimer Society’s Walk for Memories is happening this weekend in Stratford and Listowel.

The annual fundraiser is held in more than 65 communities across the province.

Sheri Gilhula is the Public Education Coordinator at the Alzheimer Society of Perth County.

She says early dementia is more than just things like misplacing your keys:
