WEEKLY SUPPORT FOR DEMENTIA & aLZHEIMER'S
Weekly Support Group for caregivers, families and clients living with Dementia and Alzheimer's. Support groups are permitted during the COVID-19 pandemic. A support group for caregivers, spouses, and families meets every Thursday afternoon from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at the DVHS Supportive Care Centre in Osoyoos.
Support is provided to the caregiver and the client by hospice volunteers specially trained by the Alzheimer Society of B.C. in partnership with Desert Valley Hospice Society.
Volunteers facilitate the discussion, present learning materials, coordinate access to BC services and resources. Information and resource materials are provided by Desert Valley Hospice Society.
How DOES THE SUPPORT WORK?
A closed group, meaning only members have access. Tea & Talks supports people interested in information about Alzheimer’s. The group’s goal is to provide comfort and a means for sharing experiences.
*Provide support to help you live well with this illness
*Help identify and access community and healthcare services
*Identify resources that can help with needs now and in the future
*Help when life gets challenging
How "tea & talks" benefits caregivers:
Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease can present many challenges and take a significant toll on a caregiver’s health. Fortunately, our Tea & Talks support group can provide the assistance and reassurance you need to manage stress and take time for your own much-needed care.
Finding a support group, such as Tea & Talks, to share stories with, seek advice from and simply have available to listen to you on a regular basis can help lower caregiver stress and alleviate the health risks that caregivers face. Plus, our support group has information on community resources for Alzheimer’s education and other programs that can ease some of the workload.
