Support Groups

Join us in a caring and understanding environment where you can ask questions and get straight answers from people who have been there.

A caregiver support group can act as a positive outlet providing caregivers regular time for social interaction outside of the home. The groups offer a safe place where any negative emotions about caregiving can be expressed and validated (like anger, frustration, and grief), helping participants feel they are not alone. 

Caregivers can gather ideas on how others deal with the everyday challenges of caring for a loved one during each of the stages of dementia. You may find that you can help others experiencing where you’ve already been. In addition, many groups provide an educational component with expert advice on caregiving topics.  Remember, laughter, taking care of yourself, and planning for the future are essential to well-being.
