Support for Persons with Dementia

McCormick Early Stage Support Group 

Learning that you have dementia and experiencing the changes involved in its early stages can be a particularly challenging experience. Our Early Stage Support Group brings together people who share this unique journey and who provide a vital support network for each other. Comprised only of people with early dementia symptoms, this group builds a strong sense of connection with each other, addresses problem solving and adapting techniques, as well as provides enhanced practical skill development activities to make the most out of your abilities.

It is an environment that provides a safe haven for members to openly discuss their thoughts and feelings. Participants sharing their path with other group members helps reduce the sense of isolation and creates strong bonds.

Currently, our Director and team of social workers are determining the best method to offer a virtual alternative to this support group during the Covid-19 closure. Please stay tuned.
