Alzheimer’s WA recognises that supporting a person living with dementia can be challenging given the complex and changing nature of dementia. Sometimes people can also feel alone or isolated in their support role.
Our carer support groups provide carers with an opportunity to connect with others in a similar situation and share their ideas and experiences. Programs are facilitated by Alzheimer's WA staff with expert dementia knowledge, who can link you with the support and services you need throughout your caring journey.
How could the service help me?
You can join one of our monthly carer support groups. 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.
- An opportunity to meet others in a similar situation
- A forum for sharing ideas, management tips and techniques
- A source of ongoing social and emotional support
- The provision of expert, dementia specific knowledge
- An opportunity to build and maintain your support network
Am I eligible?
These groups are available for anyone supporting a person with dementia and living in the community.
Where is the service provided?
The program is delivered across various metropolitan locations.
What is the cost of the service?
Services are supported by the government and a small co-contribution is required.
