Support Groups for the Person Living with Dementia
Making connections with others going through the dementia journey
(either persons living with dementia, their care partners or people with MCI) helps to alleviate feelings of loneliness and alienation while also providing a much-needed support network. Participants often find the group setting provides a helpful way to problem solve around the challenges that occur when living with dementia either as a care partner or someone living with the disease (in the early stages). The following support groups are offered through AlzSWP.
In-person groups will be offered as appropriate according to COVID 19 restrictions. If it is not possible to hold the group meeting in-person, then it will be held virtually via ZOOM at the same time as the scheduled in-person meeting.
All AlzSWP clients are welcomed to come to any location throughout our region where a program is offered.
