Dementia Support NW - Support Groups
Caregiver Support Groups (In-Person and Virtual Option)
Blending one-on-one education with traditional peer support, these evidence-based, confidential groups meet weekly to provide the caregiver or loved one the opportunity to talk to other individuals who are facing some of the same problems and challenges they are. Many find it helpful to talk with an understanding group about the frustrations they are experiencing.
Alzheimer’s disease and memory loss create many specific problems for families in their daily lives. Simply getting to know other people with similar concerns is a comfort to many.

Are you caring for someone with early-stage Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia? This support group meets once a month and is a great way to seek support from those who have the same concerns and challenges related to caregiving for someone with mild cognitive or memory impairment.
Group meets 3rd Wednesday at 11:00 at the Camano Center for an hour. Option to stay and have lunch with the group at the Camano Center starting at noon. Lunch is a “pay what you can” donation.
First half hour - caregiver and person with dementia start in the same room.
Second half hour – caregivers are in one room and those with dementia may break-out in another room with group facilitator. Caregivers may come without spouse or partner. Person with dementia needs to come with a caregiver or partner. If you are bringing partner with dementia, the group is geared toward early dementia clients (for example, the person with dementia needs to be able to self-manage toileting and have ability to engage in some verbal conversation).
