Support Groups

Dementia Care Support Group are led by people who understand what you are going through and want to help. A professional trained in dementia care will facilitate each gathering. You will gain access to valuable dementia care resources to help you better understand the diagnoses’ and diseases that fall under the umbrella term of “Dementia”. You will also receive tools to assist you in navigating these often rough waters.

Dementia Care support groups can be an invaluable source of guidance, assistance, and encouragement while providing a safe place to get support and discuss challenges. Connecting with others who know first-hand what you’re going through can help reduce feelings of guilt, fear, and helplessness. This is an open meeting and we highly encourage your participation.
