 WHY JOIN A SUPPORT GROUP?
Support groups are groups of people who get together regularly to talk about issues relating to Alzheimer's disease. Groups combine social, educational and support components and are facilitated by trained individuals. 

Support groups are a safe, confidential supportive environment where you can find support, encouragement and wisdom from others with similar experiences. You'll also get education and the latest information about dementia and will develop skills to help you problem solve. Some groups may be topic-specific, such as grief or early stage, while others are more generic in nature.

All support groups are free and open to the public, but pre-registration is recommended.

** Due to the possible spread of the COVID-19 virus, we will hold all in-person support groups over the phone or virtually until further notice. Please note the number and access code for each program to participate. **
