Caregiver Support Groups
Peer support in a non-judgmental atmosphere is a source of support for families caring for a frail loved one or someone with Alzheimer’s. Our group leaders are professionally trained to lead groups which offer emotional support and practical advice for caring for a loved one. Free on-site care is provided during the meetings.

Educational Events for Professionals and Caregivers
Our mission extends to providing education to the professional elder care network, caregivers and the community at large on issues related to aging, Alzheimer’s disease and caregiving.

For caregivers, having information will support good decision making while furnishing the tools to cope with the challenges of caregiving.
