Frequently Asked Questions

Is this support group for individuals with dementia or their caregivers?

This support group is beneficial for both those diagnosed with dementia and their caregivers. The group begins in a whole group setting, then caregivers and individuals with dementia are placed in separate groups.

Do individuals with dementia need to attend?

It's encouraged for them to attend, but not necessary.

Who is eligible to attend?

This group is designed for people with recently-diagnosed dementia; however, the information can be beneficial to caregivers of people with all levels of dementia. 

Does my loved one have to be formally diagnosed to attend?

Yes, your loved one must have a diagnosis of dementia in order to participate. This is to ensure the participant is truly experiencing dementia and not other medical issues that resemble dementia.

If your loved one is not diagnosed, and is experiencing symptoms, please contact your loved one's primary care physician.
