Caregiver Support Group

Are you experiencing caregiver stress, seeking information on dementia care, or wanting to meet other caregivers?

 

Caregiver Support Group provides an opportunity for respite while meeting other caregivers in a similar situation to share caregiving experiences and practical tips, learn about dementia, and discover resources in a relaxed and safe environment.

Sessions are conducted in English for two hours (2.30pm-4.30pm), consisting of a talk by a guest speaker and a sharing session amongst caregivers. Participants are to be seated by 2.15pm.
