Leading a dementia support group is both challenging and rewarding. Balancing individual needs with group interests can be tough due to the diversity of the members, but it also offers a chance to foster coping skills, build support networks, and form meaningful friendships. Through education, mutual support, shared experiences, and friendships, people find the strength to navigate dementia together, realizing they are not alone.
