Dementia Caregiver Support
Coleman Adult Day offers free support for caregivers.
Dementia Caregiver Support Group at Coleman Adult Day
Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia change the lives of the people who receive the diagnosis and the friends and family who care for them. Those caregivers need support from others who share the experience and understand.
What Dementia Caregivers Can Expect in a Support Group
The support group, whether it is in person or online, is made up of people who share the dementia caregiver experience and understand the life. The group provides a safe, private place for friends, family, and caregivers of people with dementia to meet, learn, talk and find a supportive community.
A good support group is for caregivers/family to:
- Share information on problems, challenges and even solutions when it comes to caregiving persons with dementia
- Learn ways to cope with the situation by talking openly about the trials, exhaustion, and frustration – as well as sharing the accomplishments
- Share their feelings and concerns – especially about themselves. Too often, caregivers put themselves last and that neglect can harm their well-being
- Learn about valuable resources from others in the support group – including local organizations and services or online support
