Monthly Support Groups
The Alzheimer Society of Oxford offers monthly support group meetings in Woodstock, Ingersoll and Tillsonburg. Family members and friends of persons with Alzheimer's disease or other dementias are welcome to join us at these meetings for: emotional support; information on day-to-day practical issues; research updates; Society information; resources and an exchange of ideas. Additional support groups will be introduced as the need is demonstrated.
Participants agree that the group setting allows them to openly discuss their feelings, experiences and fears in a non-judgmental and supportive atmosphere. Participants also appreciate the opportunity to have some form of education offered at each meeting. Call the Alzheimer Society at (519) 421-2466 to speak to a Family Support Worker about the support group meetings in your area.
