Over 747,000 Canadians are living with Alzheimer's or another form of dementia.
Those suffering from Alzheimer's can lose track of time and dates and newspapers have become a way for us to track the date. So, on September 21st, World Alzheimer's Day, The Alzheimer's Society raises awareness for the disease by repeating the news from the day before. ​​​​​​​

In Partnership with the Globe and Mail, readers will receive what they believe is the same newspaper from the day before to show how victims of Alzheimer's experience memory loss.
Saturday's cover may look identical to Friday's, but once you open the cover, that's where you'll find the real issue.
