“What I love most about being a First Link® Coordinator is having the opportunity to connect and support people living with dementia and their family and friends. To be on the dementia journey with someone, to share information on how to get a diagnosis, help someone navigate our challenging health care system, or provide hope to live better with their diagnosis is such a privilege.”
