Are you caring for a loved one with cognitive loss, or a neurodegenerative disease? This support group will help you to:
- Connect with others and establish sustainable support.
- Care partnering is stressful and can be isolating–grow your network.
- Explore coping, reacting and adapting to the many changes of providing care for a loved one.
- Learn from others and gain a better understanding of your loved ones’ challenges.
- Become a more effective care partner.
Meetings will be via Zoom, 90 minutes long, for 10 weeks (to be followed by regularly scheduled maintenance meetings).
