Families & Friends of Aging Adults

Dementia Support Group

What is normal aging behavior? Where can I turn for help? How can I cope with my guilt? Does anyone understand how I feel?

If you struggle with any of these questions, this group may be for you. Our dementia support group for Families & Friends of Aging Adults is designed specifically for those who are caregivers to older adults, and provides an opportunity to gather information, gain answers and grow.

What to expect:

  • Information – Past topics have included financial planning, coping with hearing loss, Alzheimer’s, depression,
    managing stress and guilt, and much more.
  • Ideas – Fresh thoughts about how to manage, where to call, how to get help, how to solve problems.
  • Encouragement – Other caregivers understand your situation better than anyone else.
  • Support – A positive atmosphere can help you overcome the challenging tasks involved in caring for loved ones.
  • Confidentiality – Your personal and family concerns are not shared outside the group.

New members are welcome to join at any time.
