Resources for financial advisors

For many Canadians, dementia is an everyday reality. As a financial advisor, you're likely to have clients affected by Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia – whether they have the disease themselves, or are caring for a person who does.

Not only does a diagnosis of dementia affect a person’s health, but it has serious financial implications for the person and their family. This section provides information to help you better understand the disease and its impact on individuals and families, and to assist you in pointing clients in the right direction.

Where your clients can find help and support

The Alzheimer Society offers local programs and services across Canada to support people living with dementia, caregivers and families. These may include:

  • Support groups
  • Individual and family counselling
  • First Link® – an early intervention program that gives people with dementia and their caregivers a direct connection to information and services in their community
  • Day programs for people with dementia/respite care
  • Art and music therapy

Encourage your clients to contact their local Society to find out what's available in their area.
