Caregiver Support Groups

The Scotiabank Learning Centre holds three monthly support groups. Group meetings consist of ’round table’ discussions on topics relating to dementia and caregiving. Participants enjoy meeting new friends and sharing their thoughts, ideas and helpful hints for caring for someone with dementia.
