First Link® - A Referral Program for Health-Care Professionals
Linking people with Alzheimer's disease and other dementias and their caregivers to the Alzheimer Society for information, support and education.
First Link® is a referral program designed to link individuals and families affected by Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias with services and support as soon as possible after diagnosis. Formal referral by physicians and health professionals allows for proactive contact from the Society to help the family better cope with their situation. Supports available include information, support groups, education sessions and referral to other health resources as needed. While physicians and health-care providers can make referrals via First Link®, individuals and their families can also contact the Alzheimer Society directly for assistance.
Please contact the Alzheimer Society for further information on supports available for people affected by Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia.

The Alzheimer Society would like to thank the Dufresne Foundation for their $10,000 grant.
