Connecting with others is an important part of caring for ourselves. Eskaton support groups bring people together who are going through (or have gone through) similar experiences. If you are dealing with a major illness or a stressful life transition, you do not have to go through it alone—a support group can help.

Our support groups can:

  • Provide you with a safe, confidential and supportive environment to share your lived experience (even the frustrations and challenges).
  • Help you build capacity and resiliency to navigate your situation. Learn from others who have developed meaningful approaches and strategies for living with a diagnosis of dementia or how to support a loved one with a diagnosis.
  • Create connections between you and others in similar situations. Learn about the wide array of resources and support available to you and your loved one.

All support groups are currently being held virtually. No reservation is required and there is no cost to join.
