Edmonton Community Neurology Support Foundation is an established non-profit organization delivering neurological care to patients across Northern Alberta. We treat patients diagnosed with conditions including Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, Migraine, Multiple Sclerosis, and Seizure disorders.

Coping with the diagnosis of a neurological condition is often difficult. Patients suffer with anxiety and/or depression, financial issues, and coping with changes in their physical abilities. We are seeking a psychologist for individual counseling, group therapy sessions, and educational programs designed to help patients better understand and manage their condition. We believe that this initiative has the potential to make a real difference in the lives of many people living with neurological disorders.
