Early Memory Loss Family Support Group

Are you caring for a loved one with
Early Stage Alzheimer's Disease or Memory Loss?

This Early Memory Loss Family Support Group is for you!

Caring for a person with memory loss presents many challenges such as:

  • Getting a diagnosis when your loved refuses to see a doctor
  • Finding better ways to communicate with your loved one
  • Deciding when your loved one is unsafe to drive or be left alone
  • Coping with your own frustration and sadness
  • Finding time for yourself

A support group is a great place to grapple with these sorts of issues. In the company of people facing the same situation, you can share your thoughts and feelings and get practical ideas.

The Maine Alzheimer's Assocation, in cooperation with Maine Medical Center, is pleased to offer a new support group for families whose loved ones are either in the beginning stages of Alzheimer's disease or a related dementia or who are undiagnosed but exhibiting significant memory loss.

When: 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month, 3:30 to 5:00 PM
Where: McGeachey Hall (4th floor), 216 Vaughan Street, Portland
Cost: Free
Facilitators: Robyn Berry and Liz Weaver, Maine Alzheimer's Association
