Virtual Support Group for Persons Living

With Cognitive Change

Are you caring for someone living with dementia at home?

While dementia can be a difficult transition to live with, those who care for people experiencing this transition also experience their own difficulties. Facilitated by a licensed social worker, this support group is specifically for care partners of those living with dementia.

Through this group, participants can gain a support network of other care partners who understand what it is like to live with and take care of a person living with dementia and help them feel less alone.

Care partner 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*, twice monthly Virtual Care Partner Support Group. Be heard, be encouraged, gain strength – for yourself and those you love.

*Your generous donations help us continue to offer this course.

“I always look forward to joining this meeting regardless of how our day has gone. Shazia prompts us ahead of time to think of positive things in our lives but always listens to each of us as we struggle to care for our loved one. We laugh, we cry, we care about each other, and we always feel a bit “lighter” when the meeting is over.” – Care Partner/Participant
