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.
