Support groups

Early Stage Memory Loss Support Groups are regularly scheduled meetings to provide emotional, educational and social support for people living with memory loss. Some groups are specifically for younger-onset dementia, meaning they are geared towards individuals who received a dementia diagnosis before the age of 65.

Early Stage Memory Loss Support Groups are currently being offered on Zoom for anyone in our service area.
