Carer Support Groups


Carer support groups aim to bring together and support carers of persons who are living with dementia in the community. The groups provide carers with an opportunity to discuss the impact of dementia on their lives and the lives of their loved ones, and to give and receive information and support. Each group meets once a month for two hours, and are facilitated by an Alzheimer’s WA staff member.

A separate Carer Support group for carers of persons living with Younger Onset Dementia (those diagnosed and under the age of 65) is also available.
