Support Groups

The Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan offers Support Groups for people with dementia and Caregiver Support Groups that can improve your quality of life. These groups provide a safe environment where you can learn, laugh and help each other through mutual understanding.

Early Stage Support Groups

Our Early Stage Support Groups provide an opportunity for people with dementia to:

  • Learn about living with dementia and its progression 
  • Share feelings and common experiences 
  • Exchange practical coping strategies 
  • Participate in discussions 

For more information on Early Stage Support Groups, call 306-949-4141 in Regina, 306-683-6322 in Saskatoon, 306-773-2683 in Swift Current or 1-800-263-3367 elsewhere in Saskatchewan.

Caregiver Support Groups

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 
  • 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 
  • Find a sense of hope 

Caregiver Support Groups are available throughout the province. Meeting details and contact information for these groups is provided below. 

**Please contact us or the community contact before you attend a support group.**
