A referral to the Alzheimer Society of Kenora/Rainy River Districts is important!
A referral to the First Link program will ensure your clients with dementia and primary caregiver(s) will be connected to receive SUPPORT & EDUCATION after a dementia diagnosis.
Who could I refer?
- Your clients with a dementia diagnosis
- Care partners/Caregivers
- Clients with dementia at any stage of disease (early, middle or late)
- Family members
- Self - walk in our office or by calling 1800-692-0245, 807-468-1516
What the Alzheimer Society provides:
After the referral is received the Client Services Coordinator will schedule an intake with the caregiver. Once an intake is completed you will receive a referral acknowledgement letter outlining programs and services the client is receiving from the Society and any outreach supports. Your local Alzheimer Society is key to reducing caregiver burden, enhancing care partner capacity and competency, further decreasing the incidence of crisis situations.
Due to confidentiality a referral must be received by fax only at:
