Early diagnosis keeps your life from unravelling

Did you know that almost half of Canadians affected by dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, wait too long to be diagnosed? A diagnosis helps in so many ways. That’s why we encourage you to see your doctor sooner rather than later. Knowing what you face helps with planning, getting the right medication, care and support. It also helps you and your family prepare for the road ahead.

We're kicking off a new Canada-wide campaign to provide important information for Canadians and their families who may be living undiagnosed with dementia or are worried about developing the disease.
