This nationwide service helps identify a person with dementia who is lost and assist them to safely return home. Created through a partnership between MedicAlert® Foundation Canada and the Alzheimer Society of Canada.

This private Facebook Group is intended for family caregivers of those living with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. Launched during the COVID-19 to help maintain connections during a time of physical distancing, the group is an inclusive and safe space where you can share, ask questions and connect with others.
We provide a range of presentations for the general public and caregivers. Our goal is to inform and educate New Brunswickers and to help increase awareness and decrease stigma. We also offer in-services to health care professionals on the disease, and how to care for persons with dementia.
