Virtual Caregiver Support Group Guidelines:

These groups will be facilitated by:

Joann Clemo, Executive Director and Support Group Facilitator

Housekeeping:

Please do not have your person living with dementia present, or within hearing distance of your device during the group. Even if you feel they would not understand or pay attention we must strive to maintain dignity and foster compassion. Emotions and Feelings transcend understanding. Headphones may be helpful. 
We are asking your support to keep this a confidential group by signing on in a private space away from third party eyes and ears.
If you require assistance downloading Zoom or utilizing Zoom please email Joann for assistance joannc@dementiasupportnw.org
