Talk to someone

If you are impacted by dementia, you may feel tired, overwhelmed and lonely at times. Many caregivers and people living with the disease experience a range of emotions, are at higher risk of depression and do not know where to turn.

It can be extremely beneficial to reach out and speak with someone who understands your experience. The Alzheimer Society of Calgary offers personalized support for people living with dementia and their family members.

Free, confidential consultation available

Our registered social workers are available for local individuals and families seeking support, information or resources in Calgary and surrounding areas.

It’s important to remember that you are not alone.

Assistance is available. More than 13,000 people in the Calgary area are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementias. This condition impacts not just the persons diagnosed, but their family members, friends, coworkers and neighbours. It can be helpful to speak with an objective person who understands what you are feeling, reserves judgement and who can connect you with a larger community of support.
