Support Groups & Programs for the Care Partner
The Enhancing Care for Ontario Care Partners Program
Delivered in partnership with the Sinai Health System Reitman Centre, the Enhancing Care (EC) Program offers therapeutic skills training to family or other unpaid care partners who are giving care to individuals living with dementia. The program provides practical skill-building and emotional support to help care partners deal with the stress and complexities of caregiving.
Drop In Care Partner Support Groups
ASLM now offers a variety of specialized support groups for family and friends of those living with dementia. These groups are offered in several locations on multiple days of the week in order to work with any schedule. Registration is recommended but not required.
These support groups include:
