Sharing is Caring

Facilitators: Patti Pontikis and Cheryll Davis 

Are you caring for someone with early-stage Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia?  This support group meets once a month and is a great way to seek support from those who have the same concerns and challenges related to caregiving for someone with mild cognitive or memory impairment. 

  • Group meets 3rd Thursday at 11:00 at the Camano Center  606 Arrowhead Rd. Camano Island 
  • Caregivers may come without the person they are caring for.  Person with dementia needs to come with a caregiver or partner.  The group is geared toward early dementia clients (for example, the person with dementia needs to be able to self-manage toileting and have ability to engage in some verbal conversation).  

For more information contact:  Karen Conway. email kconway@camanocenter.org  or phone 360-387-0222.
