Language guidelines

The Alzheimer Society of Canada has developed language guidelines to help tackle the fear and stigma surrounding Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. We hope that these preferred terms will promote the use of respectful language, and encourage you to use them when writing and reporting. Download our person-centered language guidelines.
