Support & Social Groups

For the Caregiver

Support groups provide an opportunity for care partners caring for someone living in the community, who share a similar experience, to support one another, exchange information and ideas and in doing so, strengthen their capacity to cope. Case counsellors facilitate these groups and offer information and guidance according to the needs and interests of the group. Support groups run once a month for 1.5 hours.  View the calendar below for detailed information about dates and locations. Respite services available - please call the Alzheimer Society at 905-687-3914 to discuss eligibility.
