As dementia progresses, people depend more on help from others. We work to educate and help families find services to decrease their stress from caring for a loved one with dementia.

The early and moderate stages of dementia can be an important time to prepare for the changes that lie ahead SHARE empowers families to get the most out of today while planning for tomorrow.

The program consists of multiple sessions that work through educating about dementia, initiating discussions about care preferences, building a support plan, and how to maintain their plan.

This program focuses on the caregiver and finding ways to decrease their stress. Caregivers work with a Care Consultant to identify resources and needs that can decrease the caregiver's workload.

Dementia Caregiver Support Group meets every 2nd and the Thursday of the month.
