Care Partner Support Groups
Early-Stage Support Groups: Education and support is extremely beneficial from the very early stages of the disease. For those in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease or related dementia, this confidential group offers an opportunity to learn more about dementia and how to address challenges that arise. We can also help to connect you with helpful resources and community services.
Care Partner Support Groups: Support groups are offered to family care partners and friends throughout Durham Region. Attending a meeting provides an opportunity to exchange information and concerns in a supportive environment with others who understand. Meetings last approximately two hours and are facilitated by family support staff and trained volunteers. We offer a selection of daytime and evening sessions in Pickering, Ajax, Whitby, Oshawa, Bowmanville, Port Perry, Uxbridge, and Beaverton. If you have never attended one of our groups before, please call ahead to register. Click here to view a full list of our groups.
