Memory Loss Support Group
Thursday, October 5, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
An event every month that begins at 10:00 am on day First of the month, repeating until Thursday, January 4, 2018
Section 1: Meets at Iona on the first Thursday of each month from 10 – 11:30 AM. Fee: $15 per person per session. Pre-registration required for this group. Call (202) 895-9448 for more information.
Individuals diagnosed with memory loss due to dementia (such as mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s, or vascular dementia) and their family and friends are all affected by the diagnosis and the changes that come with memory loss, but the experience is different for the diagnosed individual and those who care about them.
Recognizing this, Iona offers two groups that meet simultaneously and provide support, information, and resources specific to each one’s needs. Individuals with memory loss and their care partners meet together for 20 minutes for coffee and conversation, then the group splits into separate support groups – one for individuals with memory loss and one for their care partners.
We strongly recommend that both the individual diagnosed with memory loss and their care partner attend these meetings, but this is not required.
