Drop-in Programming

We offer drop-in programs that anyone can attend immediately.

Our Brain Wave Cafés provide a friendly place for people concerned about cognitive change & dementia and care partners to meet up on a regular basis for a coffee, conversation and fun.

Support Groups for care partners run once monthly (excluding statutory holidays) and are open to anyone.

Other Programming

We have a wide variety of support, education and social recreation programs. All programs (with the exception of Drop-In Programs above) require a referral be made through our First Link® program. First Link® assesses each referral for eligibility and connects the individual and their family to appropriate community supports in addition to a range of programs and services that we offer.

Eligibility Criteria

  • A person who exhibits symptoms of dementia (e.g. changes in cognition and function)
  • A family member caring for someone exhibiting symptoms of dementia

First Link®

First Link® is the gateway to dementia specific information, supports & resources in your community. Our First Link Coordinator and/or First Link Navigator will personalize programs and services to best meet your needs.
