Dementia Caregiver Support Group

Caregiver support groups provide a safe and supportive environment in which dementia caregivers have the opportunity to connect with peers. The goal of a support group is to encourage an open dialogue among peers to discuss challenges, share stories, and exchange strategies within the context of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia.

Caregiver support groups are co-facilitated by trained, certified dementia practitioners and are held once per month. The caregiver support group is open to the community and registration is required.

Group Therapy for Early-Stage Alzheimer’s Disease

An eight-session therapy group for individuals diagnosed with early-stage Alzheimer’s disease will be offered at The Memory Care Center.

  • Discover different ways of adapting and coping to the stresses of the disease
  • Explore feelings, needs, and concerns related to the disease
  • Process feeling associated with living in the early stages of the disease (e.g.., fear, frustration, worry, guilt, anger, and other emotions) with others who have experienced similar feelings
  • Understand the impact of the disease on relationship dynamics

Group members must participate in an individual intake evaluation prior to attending, demonstrate insight to diagnosis and implications, be willing to and interested in exploring thoughts and feelings related to disease; participate in give-and-take dialogue, commit to the majority of sessions, have a safe method of transportation to and from group sessions.

RSVP: Please call 860.545.7550 for more information and to register for the group.
