Support Groups

Alzheimer's Family Support Group

At McLean, we are dedicated to caring for individuals who are suffering from memory loss - and to being a resource for their families and caregivers. We understand that there are many stresses and uncertainties when caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, so we have set up a support group to help you connect with people who are in similar situations. Hear stories from others and learn some helpful caregiving tips along the way . . . plus, we invite you to share what you have learned while caring for your loved one.

First Monday of every month, from 1:30 – 2:45 p.m.

Burkholder Restaurant, McLean
