Program Description: 
While dementia can be a difficult transition to live with, those who care for people experiencing this transition also experience their own difficulties. Facilitated by a licensed clinician, this support group is specifically for care partners of those living with dementia.

Through this group, participants can gain a support network of other care partners who understand what it is like to live with and take care of a person living with dementia and help them feel less alone.

Support groups have been shown to: 
- Reduce anxiety
- Reduce depression
- Reduce distress
- Increase a sense of empowerment and control
- Improve healthy coping skills
