First Link

Working together to link individuals and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia to a community of learning, services and support as early as possible in the disease process.

First Link®is a program of the Alzheimer Society that connects people with dementia and their families to information, support services and education as early as possible and throughout the progression of the disease. Formal referral from physicians and health professionals allows for proactive contact with individuals and families.

  • The more you know about Alzheimer's disease or another dementia, the better you may be able to cope with your situation.
