CFN's WrapCap & Gordie How Cares

When people hear the name Gordie Howe, they remember that tough but graceful hockey player sporting the famous number 9, affectionately known as “Mr. Hockey.” In a career spanning twenty-six NHL seasons, he accomplished more than anyone could have ever imagined. Today, a different legacy exists, where the goal is to reduce statistics versus creating them.

CFN's WrapCap Program recently attended a luncheon hosted by Gordie Howe CARES, a charitable organization founded in 2014 committed to the needs of the all Caregivers and aim to address a critical gap in existing public and non-profit dementia caregiving services in Alberta.

For those providing the role of caregiver to someone affected by dementia, days can feel like they repeat themselves. The things you reminded loved ones of yesterday may be the same things you are reminding them of again today.

Through Gordie Howe CARES, caregivers can put themselves in a position to better support themselves and their loved ones. Now, days can have more wins than losses.

Gordie How CARES mission is to ensure dignity, support and education are provided to caregivers of people living with Alzheimer’s and dementia related diseases so they are never alone on their journey.
