Alzheimer’s disease: Early diagnosis is key Resources and medication can benefit most people Black Press AS MANY as 50 per

cent of Canadians with dementia are not diagnosed early enough. And that means many Surrey residents living with dementia are losing precious time when care and support can make a difference in their quality of life, says Avalon Tournier, the Alzheimer Society of B.C. support and education coordinator for White Rock, Surrey Central and North Delta. An early diagnosis can also avert unnecessary crises for their families, she adds. There’s a growing urgency to the message, as more than 70,000 British Columbians already live with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia – a number that is set to double within the next 25 years as Baby Boomers age. Almost three-quarters of Canadians know someone living with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia. “A diagnosis of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease can be devastating, but it can also bring relief,” says Tournier. “Early diagnosis keeps your life from unravelling.” Some people with dementia believe that little can be done for them. Yet early diagnosis can bring a measure of relief and help them take control

of their lives. Tournier notes earlier diagnosis also opens the door to important local information, resources and support through

Hollywood

Workshops for girls

the society, which helps people with dementia focus on their abilities to remain independent in their homes and communities longer.

With early diagnosis, people can access medications that, although not effective for everyone, have the greatest impact when taken

early, she adds. The society is working to break down the fear and stigma that still surrounds dementia, says Tournier, through

a variety of local programs and services. For more information contact Tournier at 604541-0606 or atournier@ alzheimerbc.org.
