Caring for someone who has dementia is often physically, emotionally and financially draining. Because of this, family caregivers often find it very difficult to care for themselves. At the Meaning and Hope Institute we support you as the caregiver so you can continue to find hope and meaning in your relationship with someone who has dementia. With support you can increase your resiliency, your ability to withstand the pressures, and grow stronger despite the stress and grief that often goes on month after month, and year after year.
If you are a family caregiver, you don’t have to take the overwhelming caregiving journey alone. We are here to help you.
There are a wide range of discussion series, video discussions, educational and entertainment resources, and family caregiver support groups, all available at no charge.
