Alzheimer's disease is a neurodegenerative disease and one of the most common forms of dementia that primarily affects older people. Considered to be incurable, this disease not only affects people who get diagnosed with it, but touches their loved ones as well. It is estimated that 1.1 million people in Canada are affected by Alzheimer's disease. For many years, several researchers have worked hard at finding solutions. Although there is no definitive cure, the progression of the disease can be delayed.

Outaouais’s Memory Clinic needs you!

If you know someone with Alzheimer's disease, you are probably aware that there is no miracle cure to date. That is where the specialized research of the Outaouais Memory Clinic comes into play.

Under the direction of Dr. Richard Bergeron, a physician-psychiatrist and graduate of Harvard University, an entire team is working to develop innovative treatments to prevent and slow the progression of this disease.

No cost for study visits and screenings!

If you are between the ages of 50 and 85, you can contribute actively in trying to find a cure for this insidious disease. The Outaouais Memory Clinic in Gatineau is looking for volunteers to participate in worldwide innovative clinical trials. Volunteers may benefit from study-related cognitive and medical evaluations (MRI, PET scans etc). A doctor’s referral is not required.

The individuals who contact the clinic will be asked to answer a telephone questionnaire to help determine if they are eligible to be evaluated at the clinic for study participation. They may be invited to take part in a clinical trial on cognitive losses associated with Alzheimer's disease.
