Support Group Facilitator Resources

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.

Dementia Alliance values you as a crucial team member and community contributor. You offer a unique opportunity for participants to connect with others who understand their experiences. Thank you for assisting us in fulfilling our mission of improving the lives of North Carolinians affected by dementia and empowering their caregivers through support, education, and research. Your collaboration enables us to provide extensive personalized support throughout the dementia journey, based on our CARE foundation: Comfort, Assistance, Resources, and Education.
