I have a caregiver who is experiencing stress from caregiving for a person with dementia. What can I do?
If you are a health care professional we have a program to help you support your patients who are caregiving for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia get connected to community supports and services. By using the First Link Program the Alzheimer society peel will connect patients to an outreach counsellor within 3-5 business days. The program will enable you to feel secure in knowing that your patient will receive timely support, counselling, referrals and ongoing support throughout the disease process.
