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. This group is facilitated by Michelle Laguerre, LMSW, and sessions are free.

The next group meetings are:
Wednesday, August 2 and 16, September 6 and 20, October 4 and 18, 2017
6:30 – 8:00 pm

Please contact us prior to attending this support group.  Megan Christ, LMSW, Caregiver Social Worker, can provide more information as  well as assistance if you need care for your loved one during the meeting.
Please call Megan at 718-499-7701, ext. 321, or email her at mchrist@nymemorycenter.org.
We will do our very best to respond to you within two business days.
