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

Wednesdays,
November 6 and 20, December 4 and 18, 2019,
and January 15, 2020 (we are closed Jan. 1, New Year's Day)
All sessions are 6:30 – 8:00 pm


The group is facilitated by Jan Yaffe, MFT.  She is a marriage and family psychotherapist with over 30 years’ experience and a background in leading various support groups (bereavement, senior, stress management).  She moved from California to Brooklyn last year, and she’s looking forward to leading the caregiver support group at New York Memory Center.

For Teenagers!

 

Young people are often involved in caring for a relative with Alzheimer’s disease, and we know that dementia care affects the whole family. CaringKind has a new support group just for teenagers.
