Support Groups for Family and Friends

Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia can leave those with the disease and their care partners feeling isolated. You are not alone. There are other people to share the journey with you!

Support groups offer the opportunity to meet, interact with and learn from others who are living with dementia. It’s a safe environment where you can share, laugh, and help each other through mutual understanding.

These groups also offer participants the chance to:

  • Exchange information and friendship with others affected by dementia
  • Access the most current information
  • Learn and share practical tips for coping with change
  • Decrease feelings of loneliness and isolation
  • Express feelings and be reassured that these feelings are normal
  • Find a sense of hope

Supporting the health and wellbeing of our local community is our highest priority. In an effort to minimize the spread of the Covid-19 virus, we are postponing our support groups. 

This can be a difficult and isolating time for people. We are open, call us if you have any questions or want to talk.
Call 204-943-6622 (Winnipeg) or 1-800-378-6699 (in Manitoba) or email support@alzheimer.mb.ca.

Young Onset Support Groups by Teleconference

Younger onset dementia affects individuals younger than age 65. They and their families are facing special challenges related to changes associated with the disease, employment, raising children, money matters and future plans. Care partners are experiencing changes in the relationship, an increase in responsibilities related to the family and the challenge of providing care while continuing to be employed.

The Group meets on the third Monday of the month from 7 – 8:30 pm. Participation can be in person at the Provincial Office in Winnipeg or by teleconference.
