Crossing Bridges educational discussion group

Crossing Bridges

Contact: Pat Wilson, 608.232.3406 or 888.308.6251

Crossing Bridges is a four-week educational discussion group for people who have mild memory loss, are in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia and a primary care partner. The overall philosophy of the group is to promote a fulfilled life while living with cognitive change.

For persons with memory impairment who are aware of their diagnosis and are able to interact and benefit from small peer group discussions, Crossing Bridges can help people learn coping skills, enhance their family communication, gain opportunities to share, and have some guidance toward developing future plans.

Sessions take place regularly throughout the year. An interview is required before participating in this group. Please contact Pat Wilson, Family Support Specialist, at 608.232.3406 or 888.308.6251 for more information.

After completing Crossing Bridges, there are two additional opportunities. We invite you to take part in one or both of the following:
