Self Referral

If you or your family member has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia, First Link® is for you.


First Link® will help you to:

  • Get connected early and support you throughout your journey
  • Learn about every step of the journey; from diagnosis to day-to-day living
  • Connect to Alzheimer Society programs, and other community and health care services

Anyone can make a referral to First Link®; the individual diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias and their families.  You do not need a referral from a physician or other health care professional to access the community of support available.


How to Make a First Link® Referral:

  • Call your local office (Barrie: 705-722-1066; Orillia: 705-329-0909) and speak to a Family Support Coordinator who will complete the referral form by phone.
  • Fax the completed referral form to 1-705-329-2378.
