Support groups create a safe, confidential, supportive environment or community and a chance for participants to develop informal mutual support and social relationships. They also educate and inform participants about dementia and help participants develop methods and skills to solve problems.
We offer caregiver and early-stage support groups, and a telephone support group to accommodate individuals who are unable to travel to a meeting site.
