If you have Alzheimer's
The Early Stage Peer Group (ESP), provides a supportive environment where individuals with dementia have the opportunity to meet others experiencing similar losses and challenges. Their caregivers meet concurrently, but in a separate setting, where they learn about the illness, community resources, and other caregiver issues, in addition to benefiting from the support of one another. For more information, call 713.314.1313.
Support group facilitators help guide group interaction focused on acceptance, active listening, empathy and assistance with problem solving. We offer training to help you learn the process of starting an Alzheimer's caregiver support group and to gain the skills to help caregivers share concerns and feelings.
