Support groups

By joining a dementia support group, you will:

  • Meet and get to know others who are going through similar experiences.
  • Have the opportunity to discuss topics that are relevant to your situation
  • Learn more about the disease and how to care for someone.
  • Offer peer support to people with common experiences.

Time-limited and ongoing support groups are available for family and friends of persons living with dementia. Specialized groups include ambiguous loss and those for care partners of individuals with young onset dementias. If you are interested in joining a support group, please call in to our offices at 519-742-1422, or email us at asww@alzheimerww.ca to speak with a counsellor.

Please see our Program Guide for information on time-limited support groups.
