First Link. Your first step to living well with dementia.

Clinical Team

What is First Link

Whether you are living with Alzheimer’s disease, another form of dementia, or supporting someone who is, our First Link® program connects you and your family to your local Alzheimer Society programs and other community services.

First Link is about helping you and your family make informed choices so you can live better with dementia at every stage of the disease. Connecting with First Link means you can:

  • receive one-on-one or group support
  • be referred to local healthcare providers and community services
  • meet other people in similar circumstances and exchange experiences
  • get the help you need to plan your future

How to Access First Link

When you give permission to your health care provider to share your information with our First Link staff, we will contact you directly. You can also call your local Alzheimer Society directly (807-345-9556). You will be linked to local health services and resources that best suit your situation.

You will have access to Alzheimer Society programs and services to help you learn about dementia, talk about your concerns and learn to live well with the disease.
