"I loved that we were able to share this experience...we learned so much as a couple, and we both enjoyed being able to meet privately with our peers to talk openly about what we were going through."
Many families report that meeting others in the same situation is helpful in moving forward with their lives after diagnosis. The Memory Club is designed to meet the needs of both the person with memory loss and a family member or friend. One half of each two hour session (total of 11 sessions) is devoted to topics that address the entire group, and the second hour is spent in private peer groups: one for people with memory loss and one for their partners.
The goals of the Memory Club are to provide a safe environment to learn more about the disease and to be able to share experiences and ask questions and an opportunity to develop friendships and talk with others about the experience of memory loss.
