Caregiver Support Group
for persons caring for someone with Alzheimer’s Disease or other forms of dementia or memory loss
Support groups are an important place for caregivers—family members, friends, or helpers—to meet and share information, give and receive mutual support, and exchange coping strategies in relation to caring for a person with memory loss. Trained leaders help members learn ways of dealing with the problems they encounter as caregivers.
In conjunction with CaringKind, an evening group is held at the New York Memory Center. The group meets twice a month on the first and third Wednesdays. Sessions are free but you must pre-register.
Upcoming group meetings:
Please note: Support Group meetings are postponed.
Call if you need help with any issues or problems, and watch our website for rescheduled times once the coronavirus threat is reduced.
