Support Groups

The Alzheimer Society of Manitoba offers support groups for people with dementia and support groups for family & friends. Check their website for current information.

Healthy Aging Resource Team (River East-Transcona) facilitates a caregivers support group on the last Thursday of each month from 12:00-2:00.  We meet at the meal program at Parkside Plaza, 1630 Henderson Hwy at noon ($6),(optional but a nice sharing time), and then have a meeting afterwards with speakers, sharing of resources, sharing of stories, etc.  The interested caregiver needs to call 940-2114 one week prior to reserve the meal.
