Where to find help after a dementia diagnosis
The Alzheimer Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories offers First Link® to help you navigate this journey you are on. It is an early intervention program that connects people living with dementia to the Alzheimer Society for services and support. A referral from a physician of other health professional allows for proactive contact with individuals and families from the time of diagnosis throughout the progression of the disease.
“It’s one of the first things I recommend to both patients and caregivers. The First Link® program, and the Alzheimer Society, give my patients and their families support that goes beyond my office. And that’s important.”
Dr. Roland Ikuta – Geriatrician (retired)
