For health-care professionals

(Formerly Physician's corner)

Caring for people with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias is a long-term commitment for health-care providers.

From diagnosis until the end of life, health-care providers are called upon to support and treat not only the person with the disease, but caregivers as well.

This section includes information and resources to help physicians provide early diagnosis and to help all health-care providers support individuals and their families throughout the continuum of the disease.

Screening and diagnosis

Person-centred care in long-term care homes


Helpful resources about driving and dementia


Websites and forums focused on research related to dementia

Training and e-learning

A selection of websites and e-learning modules for health-care professionals


Tough issues

Alzheimer Society brochures on dealing with challenging issues and questions faced by people with dementia and their families and caregivers.

Ambiguous loss and grief

Faced with a lack of practical and educational resources on ambiguous grief and loss among people with dementia, family members and support staff, the Society developed this evidence-based practical resource for staff from a person centred perspective.
