Early Referral Program in the Suroît Region
This service is for people who have just been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, their families, their caregivers and their future caregivers.
Many families often request services when they are already exhausted or in a state of crisis. This referral and early support program aims to prevent caregiver burnout by offering support and training from the moment the diagnosis is received, possibly even before the caregiver’s role is recognized.
The presentation and content of the meetings is adapted for clients who are in the early stages of their journey. Topics discussed are:
- Understanding Alzheimer’s disease, related dementias and the changes that accompany them.
- Living with Alzheimer’s disease
- Planning for the future
- The importance of a healthy lifestyle and well being
- Reducing stress
