Group Support for Families living with Dementia

Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias can leave family caregivers feeling isolated. However, Sooke residents are not alone.

“There are other people to share the journey with you,” says Meriel Randerson, the regional Support & Education Coordinator for the Alzheimer Society of B.C. for Sooke and Greater Victoria.

Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias can leave family caregivers feeling isolated. However, Sooke residents are not alone.

“There are other people to share the journey with you,” says Meriel Randerson, the regional Support & Education Coordinator for the Alzheimer Society of B.C. for Sooke and Greater Victoria.

The Society runs a monthly dementia caregiver support group in Sooke for residents who “want to prepare themselves with current information that will help improve quality of life with the disease,” she says. “It’s a safe environment where you can learn, laugh and help each other through mutual understanding.”

The group offers the chance to exchange information and friendship with others affected by dementia, access the most current information, and learn and share practical tips for coping with change.

It meets on the second Tuesday of each month from 10 to 11:30 a.m. For information about the location, and to receive an introductory welcome package prior to your first meeting, please contact the Alzheimer Resource Centre at 250-382-2052 or mranderson@alzheimerbc.org.

More information on Alzheimer’s disease, and resources for living with its impact, are available on the Society’s website at www.alzheimerbc.org
