Alzheimer’s and other dementias are not a normal part of aging. Our list of 10 warning signs will help you understand if you should seek further information.
Doing a self-referral will help you to:
- Get connected early to support that will follow you throughout your journey
- Learn about every step in 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 our services; the individual diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia or their families. You do not need a referral from a physician or other health care professional to access our services.
If you are concerned about any of the early warning signs, go to your doctor. If you don’t receive the help you need, ask to be referred to a specialist. You know your body and you should speak up if you have worries about Alzheimer’s or other dementias.
We can be a great resource in helping you get the information you need. We can provide access to counselling, programs, and support services for you and your family members.
