Reach out to a hotline in Canada for support with dementia and Alzheimer's

Noticing a decline in your abilities and a change in who you are as a person can be scary. Reach out to any of 3 hotlines in Canada that support with dementia and Alzheimer's if you’re experiencing the following symptoms:

  • Struggling with keeping up with the direction of a conversation
  • You might experience hallucinations and delusions
  • You become paranoid and feel like everyone is working against you
  • Forgetfulness of simple things, like a shopping list, more than usual
  • Not caring about what others feel
  • Having trouble with coordination and becoming clumsy
  • Feeling anxious and fearful for no obvious reason
  • Finding yourself repeating questions when you are asked something so that you can focus better

Although everyone responds to the occurrence of dementia and Alzheimer’s differently, most people manage the condition very well. You might, however, also experience episodes of fear and pessimism. These are natural responses to the changes occurring.

Receiving the diagnosis of dementia and Alzheimer’s can be a life-changing experience. Trying to figure it out on your own might be extremely challenging. Consider reaching out to people in Canada who understand to help you cope better.
