DEMENTIA CAREGIVER SUPPORT GROUP

In collaboration with the Alzheimer Society of BC offering a safe place to exchange information, support and friendship with others whose lives are affected by dementia.

Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Alzheimer Society of B.C. is currently offering telephone support groups for caregivers only. In-person support groups for caregivers and people living with dementia will resume when we are confident it is safe to do so.

Tele-support group (for caregivers)

For those caring for someone with the disease – spouses, family or friends – a caregiver support group offers the chance to:

  • Exchange information and friendship with others affected by dementia.

  • Access the most current information provided by the Alzheimer Society of B.C.

  • Learn and share practical tips for coping with change.

  • Decrease feelings of loneliness and isolation.

  • Express feelings and be reassured that these feelings are normal.

Tele-support groups meet monthly for one hour. Regional groups and provincial groups are available to caregivers across the province, including specialized groups for adult children, Chinese families, and caregivers of a person living in long-term care.

For more information or to register for a tele-support group, please call the First Link Dementia Helpline at 1-800-936-6033 or see the First Link Bulletin for a list of days and times available.
