Caregiver's Support Group

Providing a safe, familiar, yet stimulating space.    

Caregiver’s Support Group at Dodge Park

Share, support and learn as you care for a loved one with Memory Loss.

  • Are you caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or dementia?
  • Dealing with behavior that is challenging, difficult or frustrating?
  • Feeling anxious, depressed or stressed?

Caring for a loved one with memory loss is a challenging and often overwhelming task. Our free support group is for caregivers and family members with loved ones suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia. It’s an opportunity to share feelings and ideas, ask questions or just give/get encouragement.

We can help caregivers with support, education and strategies to help you learn more about the disease and how to deal with difficult situations. We brainstorm creative ideas and each meeting is facilitated by a professional trained in Alzheimer’s and dementia care.

Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease impacts every aspect of your daily life. As Alzheimer’s patients lose one ability after another, a caregiver faces tests of stamina, problem solving and resiliency. Maintaining your emotional and physical fitness is crucial. Preparing yourself, understanding your loved one’s experience, and seeking support from others can be a big help.
