Care Partner Support Group (Caregiver and Person with Early Stage Memory Loss)

This is a two-component support group:

  1. One is for the care partner
  2. The other is for the person experiencing early stage memory loss

Education is empowerment! This therapeutic and research-based peer support group is professionally facilitated and may include discussions about the impact of the diagnosis on you and your family, coping with changing abilities, improving communication skills, finding meaningful activities, and planning for the future.

You will have access to up-to-date information regarding treatment and research advances and available community resources. Participants must have a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia-related illness, and must be able to participate and feel comfortable in a group setting. Please call in advance to confidentially discuss if your placement into this group is appropriate.

Group sessions will provide:

  • Information and Education
  • Coping Strategies
  • Discussion and Problem Solving
