Dementia Support Group

 

Virtual Support Group for Caregivers
Sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association and facilitated by Eskaton’s Gerontological Social Services Specialist, Larry Dawes, MSW

This monthly support group is an excellent way for caregivers to share information, experiences, insight, advice and encouragement. The meetings provide participants with an opportunity to learn from those who are facing similar challenges and provide a space where they can talk openly and honestly about their individual experiences, concerns and thoughts. The support group is open to anyone caring for a person living with cognitive change.

3rd Wednesday of Every Month
