Support Groups for People with Dementia

align box

Having a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia can be incredibly demanding.

People in this situation experience a variety of feelings.

The demands of the disease can make it difficult to stay in touch with friends and family, and can lead to loneliness and isolation.

Our weekly/bi-weekly support groups for people with dementia provides participants an opportunity to:

  • Learn about living with dementia and its progression,
  • Share feelings and common experiences,
  • Exchange practical coping strategies, and
  • Participate in discussions.

While in-person Support Groups remain on hold in response to the COVID pandemic, virtual Support Groups are being facilitated to ensure access to support and information during these uncertain times.

For more information about current and upcoming support group opportunities, please contact:
