sometimes, love is not enough. join our free support groups and provide better care to your loved one, and yourself.
Free, Safe and Supportive Groups
Our support groups offer a relaxed and safe environment to openly discuss concerns about caring for someone who is experiencing memory loss. We know that living with dementia, Alzheimer’s, or other cognitive disorders can be challenging and can bring many concerns, including if/how the disorder may evolve, what safety measures need to be taken, and understanding how new interaction dynamics may develop.
You are not alone! Come and recharge your batteries, get support, guidance, and share at our no-judgement Support Group. All groups are a community service and free of charge.
Which group do you want to join?
Wondering if this is right for you? Contact Lauren for a complimentary 15 minute conversation about your situation and concerns.
