The Alzheimer’s Association, Maine Chapter, in partnership with Bath-Brunswick Respite Care is offering a phone support group for care partners of those living with dementia. The Greater Brunswick Area and Sagadahoc County Phone Caregiver Support Group is held monthly on the first Tuesday via phone.
“Support groups create a safe, confidential, supportive environment where participants learn about dementia, share experiences, and develop problem-solving skills,” said Alison Russell, manager of Education and Volunteers at the Alzheimer’s Association, Maine Chapter. “Groups are available for at-home caregivers, those living with dementia, and for those with loved ones in residential care. A bereavement group is available for those who have lost a loved one to Alzheimer’s or another dementia.”
