CARES Groups

For caregivers and individuals with memory impairment

Compassionate Alzheimer’s Respite, Education and Support (CARES) groups provide an opportunity for people with memory impairment and their caregivers to participate in two separate support groups – held simultaneously. One group provides information, guidance and respite to caregivers while the other group provides conversation and socialization for those with memory impairment.

Programs are offered at no charge, but registration is required. To register or for more information, please call (508) 775-5656.
