Virtual Support Group for Persons Living with Dementia
Are you living with dementia at home? The challenges and transitions you face as you experience cognitive decline can be difficult to process. Facilitated by a licensed clinician, this support group is designed to support people living with dementia.
Through this group, participants can gain a support network of other people also living with cognitive change who understand what it is like to navigate the difficulties of everyday life with dementia and help them feel less alone.
Support groups have been shown to help reduce, anxiety, depression, and distress, increase a sense of empowerment and control, and improve healthy coping skills. Join us for a no-charge*, once monthly Virtual Support Group for People Living with Dementia. Be heard, be encouraged, gain strength.
*Your generous donations help us continue to offer this course.
