Support Groups

 

A support group provides a place to connect with other caregivers who truly understand what you are going through.  Alzheimer's disease and other dementias are life-changing for both those who are diagnosed and those close to them. Joining a support group helps develop a mutual support system.

 

Early Stage Support Groups

Each meeting will host two groups simultaneously in separate meeting rooms:

  • One group is for individuals affected by early stage memory loss and is facilitated by Kim Jacquart-Franzen from the ADRC of the Lakeshore.
  • The other group is for the care partner of the individual affected by memory loss and is facilitated by Connie Thimmig from Felician Village.
  • Consultation is required prior to the first session.
