Caregiver Support Group
for persons caring for someone with Alzheimer’s Disease or other forms of dementia or memory loss.

support group graphicSupport 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, and sessions are free but you must pre-register.

The next group meetings are:
Wednesdays, February 21, March 7 and 21, April 4 and 18
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.
