We are offering support groups in several locations. A list of support group times and dates is provided here

Early-Stage Services

One of the core themes underlying the early-stage experience for those recently diagnosed with memory loss are the changes in behavior, cognition, daily routines and relationships that can often result in isolation, depression and lack of connection with those around them. Early-stage individuals benefit from opportunities that allow them to make meaningful contributions, remain involved and active in daily life, foster friendships and make decisions for as long as possible. 

Early-Stage Memory Loss Support Groups

These groups are designed to meet the needs of the person with dementia as well as the care partner. The group splits into two smaller groups. People with dementia talk privately with a facilitator and care partners do the same separately. Each person is free to discuss feelings, issues of concern or just meet others walking the same journey.
