Support

We provide lots of support for people with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias, caregivers, family members, and health-care professionals.

Support Groups

The are many ways to get the support you need, whether you are a person living with dementia, a caregiver or a family member. A support group can give you a place to talk with others who understand the disease and know just what you’re going through.

For people living with dementia...

The booklet Memory problems? was created by people with dementia for people with dementia. It was produced and is generously shared by the Early Stage Support Groups in the North/Central Okanagan Region of the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

For more information and for support groups in your area, contact your local Alzheimer Society.

Other resources for caregivers and family members...

There are many ways caregivers and family members can get the support they need. Whether you’re looking for advice, someone to listen, or general information, there is a level of support for whatever you need.

  • The Alzheimer Society Message Board is a great place for caregivers to share common experiences and advice. It is free to register.
  • A counsellor or trained professional can help you talk through your feelings and concerns in a more intimate setting.

Individual support

With services in over 150 communities across Canada, the Alzheimer Society supports people with dementia, family members, caregivers, and health-care professionals.

If you are newly diagnosed, we strongly recommend that you visit your local Alzheimer Society for information about counseling, programs and services, and support.

To help you navigate through the changes, whether you are a person with dementia, a family member, or caregiver, we have created a number of brochures with details about what to expect. The Alzheimer’s disease Programs & Services brochure outlines the kinds of programs that are available across the country.
