Support Groups for the Person Living with Dementia

We are pleased to offer support groups for those in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.

Our support groups are facilitated by AlzSWP Social Workers and allow attendees to receive support and information, while nurturing social connections.

Circle of Friends

Monthly support group for those in the early stages of dementia. Attendees must be registered AlzSWP clients.

Care~2

Support group for those in the early stages of dementia and their care partner. The Care~2 support group allows the homebound care partner to attend a support group facilitated by an AlzSWP Registered Social Worker, while their loved one with dementia can attend a concurrently run social recreation program. Attendees must be registered AlzSWP clients.
