Support Groups for People with Dementia

align box

Having a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia can lead to a variety of thoughts, feelings, and emotions, including feelings of worry or angst.

Persons diagnosed may struggle in sharing about their experiences in living with dementia to friends or family, leading to feelings of loneliness or isolation.

Our support groups for people with dementia provide participants with an opportunity to:

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

All of our support groups are inclusive environments for people of different ethnicities, cultures or persons who identify as part of the 2SLGBTQ+ community.
