Caregiver Support Groups

The Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia offers a network of Caregiver Support Groups. These groups offer a safe environment where you can learn, share, and help each other through mutual understanding. All groups are currently meeting virtually via Zoom, due to COVID-19.

Caregiver Support Groups are a good place to:

  • Exchange and share information and support
  • Expand friendship and social networks
  • Decrease loneliness and isolation
  • Express feelings
  • Learn from others
  • Access current information

Current virtual groups: 

  • First Tuesday of every month, 7:00-8:00 p.m.
  • First Thursday of every month, 7:00-8:00 p.m.
  • Second Monday of every month, 10:30-11:30 a.m. 
  • Second Tuesday of every month, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
  • Fourth Thursday of every month, 7:00-8:00 p.m. (two separate groups meet at this time)
