Caregiver Support Group
AltaGolden offers free support groups for those with Dementia, their family members, and caregivers. We offer two types of support groups:
Memory Cafes are offered in coordination with Memory Guides, a local non-profit helping families living with dementia. The cafes provide a combination of sharing and fun activities and are open to participants with dementia and their companions or caregivers.
Support Groups are offered by AltaGolden in various venues throughout the community. These groups are designed for the family members, friends, and caregivers of someone living with dementia. Each month a different topic is covered. We also have time for sharing and learning from each other. They are a great outlet for those who need informational and emotional support.
At this time we are working to increase the number of groups offered. The following list shows where you can attend one of these groups. Please check back or call AltaGolden to find out about new venues and dates.
Is your community or organization interested in having us do a monthly support group for you? Call Laura Barish at AltaGolden to set up your group.
