Information and services available:

Many times, people with dementia and caregivers do not know about the many programs and services available in their community. You can offer them a lifeline to living well with the disease.

By referring them to First Link, you will help connect them to their local Alzheimer Society, which can offer:

  • One-on-one counseling sessions
  • Respite care
  • Support groups 
  • Social and recreational activities
  • Finding Your Way, a wandering persons prevention program
  • Medic Alert® Safely Home® Program
  • Educational resource materials (brochures, factsheets, tip sheets...)
  • Tips for navigating the health system
If you know someone with dementia or someone who is providing care for a person with dementia, find out more about local Alzheimer Society services, including information, support and education.
