Alzheimer’s Resources 

Friends and family of people affected by a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease often encounter hardship, difficulty with the affected person’s behaviours, being overwhelmed or just having difficulty with personal interactions. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia.

A good starting point is the Alzheimer Society of BC. With an internet connected device, anyone can find information and resources related to Alzheimer’s disease.

The link to Alzheimer’s BC website is:

Here, you can find accurate, informative online and in-person resources. Topics include:

  • Free, confidential information and support
  • 10 warnings signs of dementia (video)
  • Newsletters
  • Find support
  • Webinars
  • Resources on Covid-19 and dementia

There is no cure for Alzheimer’s; there are treatments (see a doctor) and ways to manage by learning and incorporating skills \ techniques from professionals and good sources like the Alzheimer Society. Increasing management skills helps to maintain a good level of independence and quality of life for the affected person.

The first step at times can be difficult, but with information on the Alzheimer Society of BC website, the first step becomes easier.
