There are many ways Islanders with dementia, caregivers and family members can get the support they need. The Alzheimer Society of Prince Edward Island staff is always available to listen, offer advice, and discuss your questions and concerns.

Professional counselling is also available free-of-charge to all Islanders who are dealing with the effects of caring for someone living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias. Counselling can be done through telephone support, family interventions and one-to-one sessions.

Please contact 902-628-2257 or email [email protected] to book a counselling appointment.
