If you are concerned about your memory, or are worried about the memory of a family member or friend, we encourage you to please speak with your local health care provider. They may offer you a memory assessment, or refer you to a RaDAR Rural Primary Health Care Memory Clinic near you, or the specialist Rural and Remote Memory Clinic in Saskatoon.

Other Supports Available . . .

Developed for Ontario, the Driving and Dementia Roadmap online tool offers valuable support and insight for discussions and decisions about driving and dementia.

The Dementia Helpline is a service of the Alzheimer Society offering individualized information and support to people affected by dementia. Callers may share their stories, have their feelings validated, and receive free information and resources related to their own situations.

The Alzheimer Society encourages anyone who has questions or concerns about dementia to call the helpline.

Some of the topics callers can learn about are: getting a diagnosis; understanding Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia; how dementia can cause changes in abilities, behaviour and communication that affect an individual’s daily life; multi-step safety plans; individual choice and decision-making; future planning; disease progression; and tips and strategies to help people with dementia and care partners to live well.

Individuals may wish to connect with the Alzheimer Society’s First Link program which offers individualized service including follow-up contacts, at least every 6 months and helps people affected by dementia connect to the services of the Alzheimer Society and other community services.

Contact the Dementia Helpline at 1-877-949-4141 or helpline@alzheimer.sk.ca



These supports are being offered as part of ongoing clinical and research services offered by the Rural Dementia Action Research (RaDAR) Team at the University of Saskatchewan.
