Caregiver Support Group
This support group will provide you as the caregiver, the opportunity to talk to other individuals who are facing some of the same problems that you are. It is helpful to talk to sympathetic people about the frustrations you are experiencing. Alzheimer's disease and memory loss problems create many specific problems for families in their daily lives. Simply getting to know other people with similar concerns is a comfort to many.

A support group is a safe place to bring up issues that might be hard to talk about at home. The caregiver can raise specific concerns where the objectivity of others can help the caregiver think through the situation.

This support group will also be an excellent place to learn about memory loss, dementia and the Alzheimer Disease, legal issues, community resources available to you and your family and better help you plan for the future. The members of the group welcome all caregivers and willingly share their ideas and experiences.

Care Partner Support Group
This is a two component support group, one part is for the caregiver and the other is for the person experiencing early stages of memory loss.

Education is empowerment! This therapeutic 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 activity, and planning for the future. You will have access to information regarding treatment 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.
