Registry provides support to people diagnosed with Alzheimer disease


As the baby boom generation ages in the province, the number of individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer disease is expected to triple.

     As the baby boom generation ages in the province, the number of individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer disease is expected to triple, according to Alzheimer Society of Newfoundland and Labrador.
     In response to these statistics, the Society has introduced a program to help support individuals in the province diagnosed with Alzheimer disease. The Alzheimer and Related Diseases Registry is a voluntary program designed to provide essential information to improve the development and accessibility of the services provided by the Society.
     The registry will allow the Society to better allocate its programs and services throughout the entire province; create a statistical tool to help the Society determine where its services are currently being used and where they are not, thus directing the development of resources based on regional needs; and, provide widespread access to the services provided by the Society to help those affected by Alzheimer and related diseases.
     To get more information on the registry program or to find out how to participate in the exciting activities taking place, please contact Amanda Collier, registry coordinator, at 709-576-0608 or 877-776-0608.
