Our support groups, led by trained facilitators, provide caregivers with the opportunity to discuss the many challenges of caring for a family member with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, with others who understand. Our goal is to provide a safe setting which promotes mutual support, both practical and emotional, throughout the course of the disease.

“I want you to know how much the group has meant to me and helped me in this process. Even though I have friends and many colleagues going through similar situations, having this dedicated time and space and commitment offers something extraordinary.”

“I’ve been a member of a support group for 5 years. This support group has saved my sanity, and allowed me to continue on as a caregiver. The support group has been the key to my survival of caring for those I love who have this disease.”

Bereavement Groups

Losing someone to dementia can be a particularly difficult and consuming process. Some of the losses happen while the person is still living, and the disease takes things away, and some of the losses are felt more later. Our bereavement groups are designed specifically to help former dementia caregivers integrate their losses into their lives and cope with adjusting to the loss of the person they were caring for and the change in caregiver role. Sometimes it helps to talk to others who know what you’re going through.

These free groups are 8 weeks long and held twice a year each for adult children or spouses/partners. Most people join the groups several months after the person they were caring for has died, but this varies widely. Call our CaringKind Helpline at 646-744-2900 and you can be added to the list for the next series of bereavement groups, or be referred to other general bereavement resources in the community.
